Summer of 2010 - Cut! Print it!

I recently produced a video for each of the NSF REU students who have graced us with their presence this summer. The videos cover different facets of the project that each student focused on over the past 8 weeks.

I'm quite pleased to have been able to collaborate with them on these shorts. Much like all their other tasks this summer, they approached the process with patience and interest and provided solid input with respect to locations and content. Upbeat attitudes like theirs make the hours in the editing room a breeze.

I'm even more pleased, however, that during their tenure here they each had several occasions to hit the streets with the UCU team and I. And they got a first-hand look at the best of times (day-long irrigation system assessments on magnificent properties - with time for lunch) and the worst of times (obscenely long drives with meager returns) in the water resource-related customer service work that I love.

This summer provided Kevin and Liliana with an invaluable undergraduate experience that should serve them well in the future.
