senior capstone presentations build real-world confidence
It’s become a rite of passage for BU’s budding engineers:
with two weeks to go before diploma day, every ENG senior takes a turn
at the podium in the Photonics Center presenting his or her senior design
project to several hundred scientists, engineers, and students.

Designing a work of engineering is similar to beginning a work of art.
It starts in the imagination and the mind. But like a piece of art, it’s
a work in progress, with a form that evolves bit by bit before it’s
ready for a gallery -- in this case the mud-splattered gallery that makes
up the college cult of mini Baja racing enthusiasts.
Service for John Daverio
A memorial service for John Daverio (CFA'75, '76, GRS'83), a CFA professor
of music, chairman of the school of musicology department and of the
CAS and GRS department of music, will be help on Sunday, May 4, at 6
p.m., at the Tsai Performance Center. A reseption will follow at the
Photonics Center. For more information log on to www.bu.edu/cfa.
John Daverio, says Chancellor John Silber, was a "superb scholar and
teacher...respected by all who knew him and adored by those who knew
him well," whose loss "is measured by the magnitude of his talents, virtues,
and achievements." To memorialize Daverio, Silber has commissioned Theodore
Antoniou, a CFA school of music professor, to compose a symphonic work
to be premiered at a concert by the BU Symphony Orchestra a Boston's
Symphony Hall in 2004.
