NAME:  Dr. Amy Johnson

Congratulations on finishing up and getting into the 4-yr. You’re going to really have to work hard now so I suspect I won’t see you around campus too often…’ll be too busy studying (ha ha). I enjoyed having you as an advisee and student. You really cared about learning and that makes my job fun. Good luck and let me know if there’s ever anything I can do. Stop by my office occasionally and let me know how you’re doing.
