GSA Student Mentoring Program

Amongst GSA's duties is partnering each incoming first-year student with an experienced graduate student mentor. This GSA student mentoring program provides an invaluable resource during the first year of graduate school [particularly the first few months]. This unique collective effort was recently covered by the IUB magazine “Teaching & Learning”. Our hope is that this relationship will facilitate greater ties between the 'new' & 'older' students, & also provide you with an informal source of information about the department & graduate student life-someone you can talk with about course suggestions; dealing with course loads/professors; ideas for MA's or paper projects; or simply day-to-day livelihoods.
