A member of our class of 8 became very seriously mentally ill. He was hospitalized and is "under very close medical supervision for the forseeable future." Officially, he is on medical leave from the University, and has returned home, which in his case is a foreign country. There is almost zero chance that he could be reinstated into the program.

One lesson we are meant to take from this, according to the Chair, is that "globalization is here to stay."
