Let GRADventure support your graduate ventures!

Graduate school is hard. This is something that isn’t said enough. It is a tumultuous period of transition, where you are still a student, still a learner, but also stepping into leadership roles as a TA or Graduate Instructor, and also increasingly expected to operate independently as a researcher. At the same time, most of us are trying to balance academic responsibilities with professional goals, forced to think about present or future employment. That is a lot to handle! And it’s normal for of us to struggle with that array of responsibilities during this pivotal period of our lives. So please take a moment to recognize that just being here, just doing this work, you are accomplishing something hard, and deserve to congratulate yourself for that.
