Seminar Fracas (9/5/06)
Yes, it's true. The very first Friday seminar has been scheduled...
for 3pm on K-Day!!!. Now, as much as we all want to honor the K
in K-day, we're going to have to wait until after 4. On the bright
side, your hard-working CSGSO representatives have been assured that
the scheduling glitch was a mistake and that in the future, a serious
attempt will be made to respect school holidays with respect to seminars.
On the other hand, the graduate faculty have expressed a desire for our
understanding that the Friday seminar series is in place for our benefit
and should be viewed as an opportunity for us to expand our horizons and
further our understanding of the field (something we have a responsibility to do),
so let's try to hold up our end too, shall we?
See you on Friday!
First Game Night (9/4/06)
Thanks to everyone who swung by (including some chemistry students!)
for the first game night of the year. We had a good turn-out despite
it being Labor Day. Our new grad students came through with some
new games... And we all learned that "Icehouse" isn't just the name
of a cheap beer!
- It's a New School Year! -
I think I speak for everyone when I say we had
a great time helping Mingsong shovel his
car out! It's amazing what a few months of
snowplow debris can create. A plow truck
would have hurt itself on this stuff! Check
out the pictures!
