When reflecting upon the preceding months, one cannot help but to be caught up in a swell of firsts. For the WKU COGS, this semester has been full of them—from first classes taken to first classes taught, to first papers written to first chapters of theses completed, the first experiences with a significantly grown and expanded department, and even to first conferences attended and first papers presented—this has certainly been a semester of firsts.
As a group, there wasn’t much that occurred in the way of COGS events. However, the comradery fostered through class meetings, office visits, departmental events, and conference travels have certainly helped to grow the cohesiveness of our small cohort of graduate students and assistants.
And while we have seen the graduation of one of our beloved friends and colleagues, I am filled with joy and excitement for all the bright possibilities that lay ahead of our proud department in the spring of 2018.
