Grad School Hacks for First-Year Students
The series “Grad School Hacks” consists of interactive workshops and roundtables designed to help participants select a thesis mentor and research group. In this series, participants have structured opportunities to reflect on factors to consider in making the decision and discuss strategies to use when faced with conflicting advice.
The series offers a brave space and forum for students to share experiences with peers and build community in an environment that is open and free of judgment. These programs also offer GPB an opportunity to assess the needs of its students in real-time and to allow for intervention should a student be experiencing difficulties or challenges.
