Visiting Student Weekend at Stony Brook

Phew… the past 3 days were our perspective student weekend. We put on our best foot forward to show accepted graduate students what life at SB is like. The current graduate students host the visitors – we show them around campus, take them to places in the area, to breakfast – the professors tell them about opportunities in the grad program… all-in-all a good time. Plus… lots of free food, my little office fridge is bursting with leftovers. (bagels and pizza… breakfast of champions).

It’s always nice to interact with incoming students because it reminds you what it was like to not be caught up in the little details of research. It lets you look at the broad picture and remember the science behind all the compiling code. Plus it’s exciting to talk about all the happenings at the LHC. There were quite a few people interested in particle physics… yay! Nothing like a couple of days of just talking about the physics of particle physics. I think I said “supersymmetry” in the past few days than I have in the past few months. Plus Sunday was so nice, we even went to the beach! — surely that’ll convince people to come here.

But now back to work… the work of particle physics. The vaca was nice while it lasted.
