Early Graduate School Guidance

We offer weekly seminars and workshops throughout the semester designed for MA and PhD students in their first and second years of graduate school. 

Beginning on January 22nd, we meet every Wednesday from 9:00 am - 10:00 am in Regent 1B27.

Why should I attend?

Graduate students face unique challenges. This accountability seminar helps new graduate students set goals, manage their time efficiently, and maintain good writing habits, while fostering relationships with peers across disciplines.

We grow community through continued contact by encouraging grad students to attend each week and report their progress to their peers. The goal of the seminars is to build effective tool sets for improving work efficiency and productivity. Drop-ins welcome and you do not need to RSVP, but we highly encourage consistent weekly attendance.
