I’ve had the pleasure of attending the Yale SOM DC Chapter Summer Picnic each of the last four years. Each year that I go, I know what to expect—BBQ, cool drinks, white tables and chairs, and DC’s heat (it’s not a dry heat!).

Today marks two months since I left New Haven for what my friend jokingly refers to as “the best coast,” and I have to admit that I’ve never felt more at home than I have here.
