So as a graduate student, I really didn’t understand the full extent of summer. Because I was not involved in classes the last several years, I had no idea how much better research productivity could be during the summer. I have had to deal somewhat with the students who didn’t get the grade in the class and want to re-examine that, but overall it’s great. I’ve heard many faculty this summer express a similar sentiment.
So to all – have a great summer! I fear it may be over far too soon.
