This whole research building is like a ghost town. I thought grad students had a lot of work to do? I'm in my first week of rotation and it has been very little like industry. Students here seem to get in a 9-10 am, take an hour coffee break before reading a journal article for the next two hours, and then set up one experiment in the day? What gives? Classes don't start until the 30th so course work isn't an excuse. I feel like I should be doing 3 or 4 experiments right now, but can't do anything because I have to wait until fellow lab mates gets in and show me what to do.
