Welcome to the second edition of W.E.B. News, the college's bimonthly electronic newsletter highlighting just a few of the many recent updates and successes involving CEAS. I hope some of you were able to attend "CEAS Night At Fifth Third Arena" on February 12 when our outstanding "Engineers of the Month" received center court recognition. The college is now in the middle of E-Week, which engineering alumni may remember as a welcome time of celebration in the middle of winter. Our popularity with prospective students is a source of great pride for all members of the CEAS family - students, faculty, staff and alumni. I am especially pleased to report that interest in the CEAS is very strong as graduate applications are up 23.9% and undergraduate applications are up 6.7% over the same date as last year. Additional news stories are posted at our website: http://www.ceas.uc.edu and I invite you to follow us on Twitter @uc_ceas and Facebook.
