Seminars Around Campus

First of all, I hope everyone had a good first week of classes! I'm taking a pretty light load this semester (comparatively) because I'm trying to use all of my time for doing research, among other things...

Plus, you become more aware of the current research being done in that field.

For all of the returning students, a lot of you may be looking at it with excitement (finally taking classes that are related to your interests or starting some sort of research) or with dread. For me, it's always a mix of both, but the semester always proves to be filled with so many interesting surprises.
