|I heard later on there were around 2,000 people in attendance at the White Coat Ceremony. Hooray for the support of friends and family!|
I know this post is incredibly late, but this week has been a complete whirlwind - no other way to describe it. I've never had classes move this fast before. It feels like the White Coat Ceremony (which was just this past Sunday) was weeks ago. Right now, I'm actually gearing up for another study session in the Secchia Center here in Grand Rapids - the official headquarters of MSU's College of Human Medicine. But before I really hit the books (on the Friday night before Labor Day weekend...) I'll toss up some photos from the White Coat Ceremony. I'm hoping to take some time this weekend (once I get my workload a little more under control) to write a little more about my first week. Until then, here you go - and a special thanks to my mother-in-law and older brother Tyler for the great photography work that they pulled off from the balcony!
