what I wish someone told me

In this session, new graduate students received guidance and learned about the experiences from a panel of continuing graduate students. In particular, the panelists shared what they wish someone would have told them at the beginning of their graduate program to help them be successful.

If you were unable to participate in the live event, you may view a recording of the session. Graduate students who view the entire video may earn a GSC involvement point toward a future GSC travel award application.
