I attended the GSA Annual Meeting in Denver. This was the first time that I did recruiting for a university and presented poster in a big meeting.
The recruiting was alright. Mary Ann, our graduate coordinator prepared some materials that made the whole process really easy: copies of the newest quarterly departmental magazine, sort of "baseball card"-like cheat sheets for our professors, a sign up sheet to get more news, etc.
We were four volunteers in total, and we made it work between talks/poster presentations that we gave and sessions we wanted to listen. Hehe Jiang was a boss giving her talk. Sounded completely calm, which is something I cannot imagine myself doing in that situation.
My poster was titled "New characterization of the S-reflector detachment fault from Galicia Margin, offshore Spain", during the times I was not in front of it, my co-advisor Dr Gary Gray was there. I felt confident most of the time... I might be getting used to this.
