The first semester of graduate school is usually challenging, whether you’re coming straight from undergrad or you took some time off in between. The systems, habits, and networks you need to get the most out of the experience aren’t always explicitly taught, sometimes leaving you wondering if you’re ever doing it right. This is compounded for first-generation academics, international students, and those who grew up in communities where academia was just not a very common choice.

In this month’s Ideas on Fire webinar, Dr. Cathy Hannabach, outlines how to set up systems for time and energy management, manage the tons of writing you’ll do as a graduate student, build a strong support community of friends and mentors, learn about and prepare for diverse careers within and beyond the academy, prioritize your health and happiness, and set yourself up to rock your time in graduate school.
