"Good advising may be the single most underestimated characteristic of a successful college experience."
William G. Lane - Advisor of the Year - 1988
Department of Computer Engineering
"Dr. Lane's opinion of a student's ability is highly regarded in industry. Corporations often contact him when they have job openings. They tell him of their needs in an employee, permanent or cooperative education, and Dr. Lane is often able to find just the right student. Dr. Lane keeps all students posted on information regarding job availability. In my own experience, Dr. Lane set up an interview for me with Hewlett Packard. Because of this interview, I was a summer employee with Hewlett Packard and have been offered permanent employment upon graduation. I am very appreciative of his help."

"Professor Lane is the most senior member of the Computer Science faculty. He is also the department's most active and sought-after advisor because students are aware of his caring attitude as well as his willingness to meet his advisees during time periods that are usually the most desirable for his students.
Professor Lane possesses a mastery of institutional regulations, policies and procedures. He has also been instrumental in updating departmental advising forms and records. There is no doubt that CSCI advising has been greatly enhanced by Prof. Lane's activities."
-- Orlando S. Madrigal
Chair, Dept of Computer Science
"Dr. Lane has been my academic advisor for the past three years. Since that time, he has proved to be an excellent advisor. His interpersonal skills and knowledge have helped guide me in the right direction to prepare myself for a successful future. I particularly like his style of creating an individual file for each student he advises."
