Personal connections:

I went to my chemistry professor’s office hours the first day of class, and she spent 30 minutes telling me about her background and research, but she also said, ‘You also have to take time to take care of yourself.’

Getting into research:
I recently found a post-doc who was asking for research assistants, and said ‘undergrads are welcome, first-years, even more.’ I met with the professor, and I was doing research in the Macromolecular Science Department by Thanksgiving.
