One of my students from last year (currently a senior) came by to say hi today. It was so good to see her! She wanted to tell me thank you for writing a recommendation letter for her because she was accepted into a BioTech program at the University of Tulsa, where she got to research alongside undergrads and graduate students all summer long.
Kinda jealous, not gonna lie.
She clearly loved the experience, and it was so kind of her to come by and thank me for the very small part I played.
