BME Happy Hour

On August 30, we organized the first social event of the semester. The newly joined students had a chance to meet the other graduate students, and everyone enjoyed some snacks, a drink, and lawn games! Even the new Director of Graduate Studies, Joel Collier, was spotted throwing a frisbee!
