How to Get Through Grad School Workshop
Graduate application szn is winding down, acceptance letters have been celebrated and you’ve chosen your program. You worked hard in college to get the grades, spent summers getting the experience…but are you ready?
Often times, people think graduate school is simply an extension of undergrad. More classes, do the homework, sprinkle in some research and writing. This is barely scratching the surface–graduate education is so much more.
More obligations outside of class.
More awkward situations.
More unwritten rules.
So much more.
Many times, women scholars and scholars of color are in the few if not first to attend grad school. Even if we come from a family full of MDs, JDs, Ph.D.s, Masters, MBAs–the rules have changed. So where does one go to learn how to navigate the experience as a graduate student from our unique perspective?
THIS ONE-HOUR WORKSHOP AIMS TO HELP YOU BE SUCCESSFUL IN YOUR GRADUATE SCHOOL JOURNEY.
- LEARN THE UNSPOKEN RULES FOR NAVIGATING GRAD SCHOOL
- EQUIP YOURSELF WITH STRATEGIES FOR STRESSFUL SITUATIONS
- GET INSIGHT FROM CURRENT GRAD STUDENTS PERSPECTIVE
You can’t afford to NOT know how you should get through grad school, the challenges you’ll face and the tools/skills you must have to successfully push through.
HERE’S WHAT CURRENT AND FORMER GRAD STUDENTS ARE SAYING THEY WISH THEY KNEW…
“I wish I knew that I’d be the youngest in my classes and the only person of color, I had to figure out how to be taken seriously”
“I often heard that I needed to pursue an advanced degree but I was never told how or why.”
“I felt completely compared for grad school but I would have jumped at the opportunity for additional resources to help me through the process. “
“I wish my grad school would have told me the difference between Undergrad and Grad school as well as the differences between an HBCU vs. PWI school, specifically the culture. I also wish someone would have explained the differences between going to grad school full time vs. part-time. It seemed like they only focused on the full time to Ph.D. narrative b/c it benefited the school to me to go full time.
If that resource would’ve been made to me, I would have benefited by knowing what to expect once I got to grad school. The workload plus working full time was unknown to me and I didn’t expect it.”
