Recap to the beginning of 2017. My research stay at Stanford University neared its end and I was preparing to return home. In one week I traveled across the U.S. before leaving for Switzerland.
My route: San Francisco → Chicago → Boston → New York → Zurich.
As October comes in, the weather slowly becomes cooler and cloudier. Still, we are talking about California, meaning there will be some clouds from now on and it gets a bit chilly in the mornings while being warm at noon.
The past week was filled with introductions, and involved meeting new people and free food. Not only did the Graduate Student Council host dozens of events during the Graduate Orientation Week, other organs and student organizations contributed their individual ones.
