This year, unlike other years, we will be welcoming our entering cohort virtually! It’s not ideal, and certainly not what we are accustomed to, but it is our new normal for now. This year we have seven new doctoral students and one MA Departmental Scholar. Some have arrived and in Los Angeles, others remain in their home states, but regardless of where they are physically, they are part of our graduate student community and we encourage everyone to reach out in whatever way they can to make them feel welcome.
Welcome, everyone, and we hope that this year turns out to be engaging, fun, and interactive! We are happy to have you with us.
