Graduate Student Etiquette

We recently had a fun (and crowded) talk here by Jorge Cham from Caltech about his comic strip, "Piled Higher and Deeper". (The comic is about graduate school--talk about a niche audience!)

I guess Dr. Cham will never have any trouble filling out the "outreach" section on his grant applications! :)

Anyway, my personal rules of physics graduate student etiquette are this:

Thou shalt not...

1. Ask any physics graduate student what year s/he is in
2. Ask any physics graduate student when s/he is graduating

If the student is eager to volunteer this information, s/he will!
