On behalf of the Mathematics Department welcome to the inaugural issue of Fine Newsletter.We constantly feel the need to reach out to each other and share information on "what is happening at Fine Hall". Over the years, we also felt the urge to share the information with our alumni and friends.  We like to think we share a common bond as residents of Fine Hall and through our love mathematics and devotion to the profession. We hope the newsletter will serve to connect us.
I hope you will enhoy reading the newsletter and provide us with feedback and that this will be starting point for us to share out common experiences and concerns with each other!
With warm regards, Alice Chang (chair of the department from 2009-2012).
