Grad Talk:Time Management for Grad Students

Many graduate students have to learn to balance a lot of competing priorities: their course-work, research and teaching responsibilities as well as personal responsibilities such as family, friends, health. Students transitioning from undergrad to grad study might find that they need to change the way and amount that they are working; students advancing in their programs might realize that they need to change the way that they are using their time. This workshop will address some of the main concerns that new and returning graduate students have, and will introduce time management strategies that can help students to achieve that balance. Pizza will be available.
