Hello from the fifth year cohort! We are a diverse group of individuals who have learned so much from each other during our time together. As fifth years, we are at the point in our training where we have branched out to pursue our respective clinical and research specialties, which is incredibly exciting! Consequently, we do not see each other as often as we have in the past, but still remain connected by our shared experiences from our first few years in the program. Some of our greatest memories include cohort dinners, working together in classes, trying to understand statistics, late night study sessions in the cube room, GASP events, and many more. We are preparing to take our first steps into our psychology professions through internship, and we are grateful for the opportunities that UNT has provided!

Now this is the story all about how 8 stranger's lives got flipped-turned, upside-down, so we'd like to take a minute, just sit right there, and tell you all about how we became the 2017 first years…. In 8 different cities, born and raised, in the classroom is where we spent most of our days, nerding out, studying, stressed as a fool, prepping for the absurdity of life in grad school…. When Dr. Wang and the crew, who were up to some good, started rifling through the CVs and the Applicant Pool, They took a look at our plights, probably knew we were scared, but then they moved us out to Denton, to learn how to sit in a chair.
We packed our bags and when the time came near, we walked into Terrill Hall and felt a little bit of fear. If anything, we could say this experience was weird, but we thought what the heck, yo Wang, take my years. We pulled in to our first class with the incoming 8, and we thought to ourselves we really like this place. We looked at our kingdom, we were finally there, 8 future doctors in a couple of years.
