MAMA MIA!  A CELEBRATION OF DR. BASIL FAVARO

On 19-June-2014, the Faculty held a small pot-luck event to celebrate the contributions of Dr. Basil Favaro to the Department.  We have created a page of images, videos and notes from this fun evening to help remember the celebration.  A wider campus celebration of Basil will be held at the alumni celebration on 25-July-2014, where faculty, students, alumni, and other guests can come and participate in wishing him well on his retirement.  This event will be held under a tent (rain or shine!) in front of the W.A. Murphy Student Centre.  Everyone is welcome and encouraged to come wish Basil well.
