Farewell to Dr. Judy and Dr. John Gersting Party!

The students helped put together an awesome and fun-filled party to bid farewell to Dr. Judy and Dr. John Gersting. The theme was Alice in Wonderland, and present at the celebration were all sorts of characters from the story, including the Mad Hatter! Mahalo to all who put in their time and effort, especially with finals looming right around the corner!

The farewell party for Dr. Judith and Dr. John Gersting was bittersweet - full of happiness in memory of the past, a touch of sadness knowing that it was about to end, and yet full of life and hope for the future. There was an amazing layered cake that reflected one of the first principles learned in Computer Science, many friends from all the other Science departments, and a madly grinning Cheshire cat in several corners. As a nod to the Alice course (CS 135 Animation Programming (3)), the party had an Alice in Wonderland theme, complete with an appearance from the Mad Hatter! Much fun was had by all, and a large mahalo goes out to all those who helped make this party possible! Mahalo nui loa!
