Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 from 3pm - 4pm Location TBD

Do you struggle with the sheer amount of reading and writing in graduate school? Do you wonder how U.S. graduate students (or students other than you) are able to read 4 pages in 5 minutes, 100 pages in the three hours before class, or 20 articles in one night? 

Join UofL alumnus, current Stony Brook faculty member, and international graduate student success scholar Dr. Shyam Sharma as he shares strategies for successful reading and writing in graduate school. 

This free workshop is targeted to international graduate students, but is open to any graduate student who might find the topic helpful.

Speed networking event for graduate students
Jan. 23, 3 to 4:30 p.m., Houchens Building, Room 105

What is it like to network in an environment where you only have a few minutes to get to know your colleague, determine if you’d like to work with them, identify shared interests, or just make a good impression? In this session, grad students will learn the basics of how to effectively speed network, get to know other grad students, and identify how to build a network from a brief encounter. Grad students interested in attending can register and find more information on the PLAN website.
