Today was the first day and although it was very anxious, it was really cool to meet all the new people that have such similar interests (4 of the 15 actually play volleyball!). We were first given a scavenger hunt to run around the entire campus and search for different pictures that had been taken. Although our group only got 15 of the 36 items offered, we still won the movie challenge and I got a new shirt! Then we met with our lab directors for the first time and were introduced to all the grad students and undergrad students also working in the lab. I left an hour early but still the day felt very long even though it was filled with fun.
