Things I Wish I'd Known from 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 from varying disciplines to pass on their best advice for structuring one's early career as a graduate student.

Because many 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!
