On Friday we got the news that once again, my graduate program is ranked #1 by US News & World Report. (press report) We’re actually tied for #1, but that’s good enough for us. Spirits in the building were fantastic on Friday, and a number of people had #1 temporary tattoos on their faces. Exciting!
Also on Friday Shane found out that his fellowship was renewed for another year. This means he’ll be sticking around for a while longer, which is also exciting!
