The Best Thing About Being a Graduate Student at IUB:
The best thing about being a graduate student at IUB is the many opportunities for academic and professional growth. Lectures allow students to listen to brilliant minds from IUB and around the country, as well as key into some of the developing trends in their fields. They also provide amazing opportunities for professional development and networking. Make sure to join emailing listserves in and outside of your department so that you can keep an eye out for talks and conferences happening around campus. The Preparing Future Faculty Members Conference is a must-go for students of all disciplines.
