Resources for MIRTHE Students


MIRTHE held its first student retreat in Philadelphia. Affiliated research students from most MIRTHE universities all came for a weekend to learn more about MIRTHE and meet other students. Since the MIRTHE schools are located throughout the United States, this retreat provided a setting for the students to connect with each other on both a professional and personal level. After all, nothing brings people together better than Taboo and Pictionary with MIRTHE-related words! Moreover, a productive brainstorming session also produced many valuable ideas and insights into what MIRTHE issues concerned the students most and how to improve MIRTHE. A Scavenger Hunt gave the students a chance to explore Philadelphia, and they left the retreat with bobble-head MIRTHE pens as well as new friends. Hopefully these newfound friendships will lay the basis for future collaborations.
