Message from UToday

Thank you for your contributions and readership in 2011. As we pause to relax and reflect on the past year, we can all be proud of our contributions. We’ve captured some of our greatest moments in a slideshow.

Take a few minutes, grab your holiday cocoa, and remember the launch of Eyes High; a special Royal Visit; the opening of the Taylor Family Digital Library, EEEL and Yamnuska Hall; applaud our award-winning researchers and student leaders; get goose bumps from the pride on the faces of our Dinos athletes; and remember the good we did for our community by surpassing United Way campaign goals.

UToday is taking a break for the holidays and will be published Jan. 4 and 6 during the first week back, returning full-time Monday, Jan. 9.

UToday wishes you and your families all the best for a healthy and happy holiday season.

Happy holidays!.
