Graduate Student Newsletter

November 2020

Greetings, Graduate Students!

We are more than halfway through the fall semester and hope that you all are doing well. It is easy to feel disconnected from the student body with our virtual setting, but we at the Graduate Student Organization are providing social events and counseling resources to help you through the semester.

Productivity and Self-Worth

Our friends from the Counseling Center discuss a very relevant topic to us a graduate students. How easy it is to tie our self-worth to how busy we are and how much we are getting done! Check out this month's article, as well as archived ones here.
