Monday morning students worked with their groups. After lunch students had the opportunity to meet some of the graduate students in the department. We talked about the pros and cons of our own graduate school experiences, no professors were present and so hopefully students got a good feeling for the truth of graduate school. For the REU students, if there are any questions that you did not get answered or think of later let me know and we will address these questions when we meet with Beth Buskirk and the graduate students again.

After the meeting with graduate students we adjourned and students got back to their projects.

Friday and the weekend

All of Friday, students met with their groups and worked with Long and Victor on their projects. We can't wait to see what they have come up with during their Thursday presentations.

On Saturday we made an unsuccessful attempt at hiking at Vedauwoo, the rain was too much for us. We ended up going bowling and playing pool instead. On Sunday Bryan and Chanyoung invited students and all those involved with the REU over for a barbecue which I trust was successful.
