Things got started with a nice welcome session that happened to include me going on stage with my co-chair for the Communities Committee, Charna, to get recognized for our efforts. The opening speakers (including student members of the ABI boards!) also gave some great advice for newcomers.
There were a bunch of sessions in the afternoon, but I couldn't pay full attention to them because they were either full or I worked on my class's assignment to be released on Friday instead. I did have fun presenting my Gram's House poster at the poster fair, making some really great connections with potential collaborators.
I'm really pumped to see everyone again tomorrow (for longer!), the sessions, my own talk, and most of all, the dancing!
