When we weren't working in lab we made sure to have a good time. Whether it was a theme party, watching a movie or just hanging out we made the most of our free time. Lab work is important, but don't forget to have some fun too!

Madrid Bluegrass Festival

At left, Lauren stops dancing for a moment to pose with the stage.

Just a short drive from Potsdam you'll find the lovely little town known as Madrid. Every year they hold the widely revered Madrid Bluegrass Festival that draws crowds, and musicians from all over the United States and Canada.

80's Party!

Meagan, Lindsay, and Ashley dressed up for our 80's theme party.

Ashley wants to know how sharp that hair really is. "Will it cut me," she asks? Ian assures her it's user friendly.

Bastille Day (July 14)

That's right. We celebrated Bastille Day, and some were a little more festive than others.

Lab work?

OK, so not all the time in lab was spent working...
