Don't just survive — thrive in graduate school

Four guiding principles for thriving

I remember when I first started graduate school. I felt excited, ambitious and optimistic — and I had no idea what I was getting myself into. As we enter another academic year, I find myself reflecting on my early graduate school days and what I wish I knew then. That's why I would like to offer four guiding principles for thriving in graduate school.
