UW CSE Ph.D. alum Kevin Jeffay – chair of the Department of Computer Science at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill – is in Seattle raising money for his department.
Kevin is in a hurry, noting the potential impact on alumni loyalty of the impending change of UNC’s motto from “Lux libertas” to “Accredited until early 2015” (or, if one is to believe Google Latin, “Adprobatum usque mane MMXV”).
Hank “Ever-Helpful” Levy got things off to a rollicking start. And he allayed Kevin’s fears by noting that UNC alumni didn’t seem to care all that much when the Old Well was converted to a water fountain.
(It’d be better of Hank would focus on Levytown instead …)
