New graduate students often encounter a variety of challenges as they discover an educational reality that can be very different from their undergraduate experience. Studying remotely in the midst of a pandemic adds its own set of challenges too.

In this 3-part interactive workshop series, you will learn what it takes to be a successful graduate student and gain strategies to achieve your academic and career goals in a healthy and balanced way during the unusual circumstances brought on by COVID-19.

While the combination of all three workshops provides the most complete overview of how to maximize success in grad school, students can choose to register for only one or two workshops, or attend all three. A unique registration is required for each session.

PART 1:  Designing your MAP to Success

  1. Understand how graduate-level learning is different from undergrad studies
  2. Identify the main factors associated with academic success and common challenges faced by graduate students
  3. Gain awareness of resources available to support grad students’ success
  4. Create a personal action plan for success based on your own unique strengths and weaknesses

*Note: This session is the same as the MAP to Success session that was offered as part of orientation programming for new graduate students. If you have already attended the MAP to Success, you do not need to attend this session.
