Hub BIPOC Graduate Student Panel: “So, you want to go to grad school?”

Tuesday, February 23, 2021
6:00-7:00 PM
Are you thinking about pursuing graduate or professional school but are unsure if it merits the time, money, or energy? The Hub has put together a diverse panel of current grad students and recently graduated ones to share their individual grad school experiences. They’ll also speak to how they navigated the application process, including asking for letters of recommendation and securing funding for tuition and living expenses.

The panel will also discuss relevant topics such as: finding the program with the right fit that’s aligned to your career goals and interests; overcoming feelings of imposter syndrome; understanding day-to-day life as a grad student; and building relationships with professors and advisors.

You should attend this workshop if you are:
- A liberal arts and/or sciences student
- Exploring the possibility of grad school and debating whether to apply
- Thinking about or planning to attend the Hub’s Grad School Fair on March 10

What you’ll gain by attending:
- Get tips on how to ask for a letter of recommendation
- Discover the resources and departments on campus that can assist you with preparing for the application process
- Gather helpful advice on how to navigate graduate school in instances where your identity is underrepresented at the schools you’re intent on gaining admission to
- Generate potential questions to ask graduate programs representatives at the upcoming Grad School Fair

Interaction Level: Moderate
- Video and audio presence is preferred
- The event will be a mixture of interactive activities and passive viewing
NOTE: Students who cannot participate as recommended are still encouraged to attend
