This year we again continued the tradition of firesides. A fireside is when a professor invites into his home eight to fifteen students for dinner and conversation, usually on a Sunday evening. These firesides allow the students to become better acquainted with the professors, meet their families, and provides the opportunity to socialize with the other students while enjoying a special meal.
