Many of the individuals that wound up becoming my mentors as I went through the process of finding a grad school, attending grad school, and getting my first big girl job didn’t ever attend grad school – or if it they did, it wasn’t for student affairs! While I’m always open to answering questions that you may have, I have decided to start a monthly post based on things that might be happening to you as a grad student that very month! Below I will list what I plan to cover each month (first year on the left, second year on the right) and eventually there will be a link to that month’s post. While I know the school year starts in the summer-ish months, I’ve started posting these in January, so eventually I will re-order them. Enjoy!
