“As a Ph.D. student, I also wanted to make sure that I attended several events specifically organized for students, which is really an aspect of the SAH that sets it apart from other similar professional organizations and their annual meetings

I attended the Graduate Student Reception on Thursday afternoon, catching up with some old friends and meeting new ones in the process, as well as the Graduate Student Lightning Talks the following day, to support some colleagues."
