notesOf the many extraordinary opportunities students have at Le Moyne, one of the most significant is the potential for collaborative research with faculty.

It was wonderful to read about your participation in the World's Parliment of Religion. No one is more worthy of representing Le Moyne College and indigenous peoples than you. Reading this story made me remember you are the most influential teacher I ever had. I wish I could have joined you.

If you plan a presentation on your trip and the accomplishments of the parliment, I would love to come. In the meantime, I will visit their website.

I always pray for our world and the joy peace for all would bring.

Dr. Smith

When a mathematician or a software engineer thinks about “complexity,” they may envision streams of equations or program code.
