REL Looks Back

In getting ready for the new semester, we’ve decided to look back at how we’ve welcomed everyone back in past semesters.

“Welcome Back…”

welcomeback2015snipIt’s become a bit of a tradition here in REL to have a Welcome Back video at the beginning of each new school year. You’ve probably seen past years’ videos recently making the rounds on our social media sites; but now the wait for this year’s video is finally over.

So, as everyone settles in for another year, the REL faculty have just one thing to say:

Welcome Back 2015 from UA Religious Studies.

P.S. You’ll surely notice some new faces…be sure to say “hello” to new faculty members Matt Bagger and Vaia Touna.
