The First Year Experience is a continued orientation seminar series for incoming graduate students organized by PBS graduate peer mentors Sarah McCormick (Developmental Science), Joel Ginn (Social Psychology), Merika Wilson (Cognition and Cognitive Neuroscience), and Molly Mather (Clinical Psychology). The student-led seminars will cover topics related to the transition to graduate school including how to navigate teaching and research fellowships, manage time effectively, and develop lasting self-care practices. Each seminar will also connect students to campus resources that will make their transition to graduate school more successful. We welcome first year graduate students to attend and gain valuable information while building a community with other students across PBS program areas.
