Do these really look like the stressed-out stereotype of graduate students? The communication students put together a very nice “welcome to the academic year” get-together at a local watering hole. Friendly grad students; at least until grades come in ;). Actually, as Varsha noted, she doesn’t have to be nice to me now, since she’s a second-year.
Pictured (l->r) are Varsha, me, Jessica, Reshma, and Jean. It strikes me that the entire cohort this year are very photogenic. I need to see if I can trick them into being our “poster class” for the new school web site.
And since I have somehow gathered a reputation for avoiding social gatherings related to school, I now have photographic evidence this is not always the case!
