Zoom
Dear all,
 
Following Mark Lipovetsky's invitation to the 'Far-Flung Correspondents Zoom,' I, on behalf of myself, Elaine and Scout (your curriculum committee), would like to invite all of our graduate students to a virtual welcome party on Friday, September 4th from 4 pm to 6 pm.
 
Although we will not be able to gather in person this year, I think this informal ~zoom party~ will nevertheless be an excellent way for new and returning students to become acquainted! Returning students, please start thinking of any tips you wish you had when you started the program and new students, jot down any questions you might have.
 
One of the things that I hope that we can talk about is how to maintain a strong grad student community during this time. The curriculum committee has been tossing around different possibilities, but we would love to hear any ideas you might have, so start thinking! 
 
The zoom party link will take you to my zoom meeting room, but this isn't my meeting (you will have already heard enough from me at far-flung), so please jump in as much as you want. Although the curriculum committee members are the official hosts of the meeting, it is an opportunity for you all to share thoughts, questions, feelings, anecdotes, etc. etc.
