Hope everyone out there is getting the chance to spend some time 
with family, friends, and furry friends.

Gingerbread Decorating Party

This nifty gingerbread dwelling designed by the lovely Ceci W. 

A little gingerbread scientist! (Einstein to be exact.) 
And, according to creator Ted G., "He has a grad student in his pocket!"

Pretty cool (and way more dynamic than the fixed lungs in anatomy lab).

Get Ready for Recruiting!

The second interview weekend of the academic year is upon us! We'll be hosting sixteen recruits over the next couple days, and in addition to talking to researchers around campus (don't worry -- we provide everyone with a living breathing guide to take care of all of that navigating between interviews!) our interview weekends are, in our humble opinion, some of the best around.

This weekend, we're looking forward to taking our recruits to try out some of the eateries on State Street, explore the city a little, watch a UW hockey game or attend a Christmas concert, and even take a tour of a local brewery.

Looking forward to meeting everyone for a weekend of fun. :]
