Things I Wish Someone Had Told Me at the Start

In retrospect, we generally would do a few things differently. So every year at New Graduate Student Orientation, we ask senior graduate students and faculty from varying disciplines to pass on their best advice for structuring one's early career as a graduate student.

Because all new grad students cannot attend orientation, we thought we'd ask some of those presenters to share their advice here. Thanks for the words of wisdom!
