I remember having a hard time adjusting to the Johns Hopkins workload at first, but everyone in my Materials Lab with Dr. Wilson was really welcoming and included me in Ajumma runs and late-night study groups. I can’t decide whether my favorite MatSci memory was our class-wide running joke about building a real-life Iron Man suit, or getting a chance to work with the Hopkins Archaeological Society analyzing an ancient Mixtec mosaic for Dr. McGuiggan’s Materials Characterization class.
