Comradery
Today was a nervous day around Terrell Hall. Not only did the first year students receive our evaluations from the faculty, but we also got our student evaluations back from last semester. There is something about evaluations that put everyone on edge. We've been waiting all week and today was the lucky day. We sort of tip toed around for a while and pretty soon started sharing the good, the bad and the ugly with each other. Since we had heard some pretty horrible things about the faculty letters we’ve been quick to reassure people that the letter experience would be okay. We were all great students, no real problems, etc. But you never really know—until you read the letter.

We all got some negative student evaluations but from what I could tell, the rest of the letters/comments were positive. However, the best part of the day was the support we all gave each other. Everyone hears horror stories about graduate departments that are uber competitive and adversary. It could easily be that way at Georgia. But thankfully I have the greatest, most encouraging classmates EVER. I was so proud of us today! We handled a very stressful day with ease and humor. I'm so glad we felt comfortable sharing the good and the bad (there was no ugly to share!) with each other. We know that Terrell 226 is free of judgment and full of hugs and giggles.

P.S. Sorry for the cheesey post everyone! I couldn't resist!
