A year at U of R

The real question in everyone's mind before classes began at the U of R was, "What will our uniforms be?" Forget about textbooks or syllabuses, we just wanted to know what color we'd be wearing.

Up until this year, the uniforms were white pants and white shirts. Thankfully, due to continued pressure, they changed this year's attire to navy pants and white shirts. I think they look pretty good. We had to sew the patches on ourselves. What they didn't tell us beforehand is that you don't have to buy the uniform at the bookstore, so you can get different styles of scrubs pants, as long as they are navy.

I actually love wearing scrubs. You never have to decide what to wear in the morning, which is a blessing when you've got clinicals beginning at 7am. I think that we've all come to like the uniforms.
