This week has been full of orientations, and today is yet another. Just to let you in on my academic life, if you are unawares...
I recently moved to Eugene, Oregon to attend the graduate school at the University of Oregon. My aim is a PhD in Linguistics, with an emphasis in Historical Linguistics. I chose Eugene primarily for their package offer, and the chance to work on a project that I am interested in:
"An Electronic Database and Typology of Medieval Slavic Eastern Orthodox Calendars of Saints" which you can check out at http://logos.uoregon.edu/research/grant_supported.shtml.
The campus is lovely, with lots of towering trees and green spaces, and it is very pedestrian and bike friendly. Everyone I have met so far have been friendly and helpful, and I think my time here will be both stimulating and advancing. I am off to more orientation again today, and hope to meet some fellow grad students and make new friends.
