be nice to grad students week.
Rice has a biennial symposium. A different faculty member is in charge each time and the one I’m in charge of starts the day after tomorrow. It definitely would not be possible for me to sit at home blogging without our fantastic grad students, who’ve been helping me buy food, picking up guest from the airport, providing crash space, answering email, etc etc. Ok, I admit that I have provided them with an excuse not to work on dissertations, but this is spring break after all – no excuse is needed from me.
