b'Known145My graduate school program has done a really good job of fostering community, and a lot of it is due to fellow students. Since its a two-year program, the current class really makes it their goal to personally reach out to the members of the incoming class. There are a lot of inviting and welcoming traditions passed down from year to year, and one-on-one conversations are strongly encouraged so students can get to know each other. Some of the first people I met quickly became some of my best friends.George, 23'
