GEARS: Adjusting to Graduate School

Date: 
October 20, 2015 - 4:00pm to 5:30pm

Adjusting to Graduate School

The transition from an undergraduate education to graduate school is academically challenging.  Expectations are different, as is working with a graduate advisor, and students have more independence in doing their research. Graduate school also presents new challenges in time management and juggling competing priorities between classwork, research, being a teaching assistant, and attending various meetings and presentations.  This seminar will review and address these challenges and ways to overcome them, and the deans will answer questions and identify resources available to students to help transition into academic work at the graduate level.

Speakers:
Chris Kello, Associate Dean of the Graduate Division
Callale Concon, Assistant Dean of the Graduate Division

Light refreshments will be served.
