Overall, it was a great experience. As with any two year graduate program, our time here is limited. However, through something like town hall not only are we able to make our concerns or comments known, but we also get access to a much clearer picture of what decisions from situations in the past have created the department we have today. It is also a unique atmosphere to get to know each other and our professors better. We were especially thankful to the faculty for their attendance--for us this is a rare and exciting event to let loose all the things we've wanted to talk about with everyone since we got here--for them it is a much more familiar experience.
