Student Of The Month - September 2000
J. Nicholas Deibel
Nick is one of the smartest individuals I have ever encountered.
(So smart, I often wonder why he is not at MIT instead of Butler).
Although he works hard to achieve a great deal, he is always
willing to help others in various subjects (ie. computer science,
math, etc.). In addition, Nick has helped me with scheduling
meetings, and participating in the ACM club. Nick's outstanding
scholarship and positive attitude makes him a great candidate for
student of the month! Good job Nick!!!

Nick is an evening tutor for cs241 which I am teaching this
semester. One day he walked into my cs241 lecture and all the
students started bantering with him. It was clear he has a great
rapport with the students and they value his help, mentoring and
friendship. Thanks Nick!
- Prof. Peter Henderson
Nick has been something of a force in our department ever since
he has arrived at Butler. He is famous for breaking the curve in
every course he takes, and many of the students have sought his
help with homework and programming projects. Nick has done a number
of interesting things in the past few years; he attended the
prestigious Mathematics Semester in Budapest, Hungary last year,
and this past summer he worked with Anne Condon at the University
of British Columbia on a research project on DNA computing. He
plans to get a PhD in theoretical computer science. Congrats
