Often the graduate school will host informal brown bag discussions open to all grad students. These are a great resource and you even get to bring your lunch! One of the discussions focused on transitioning from student to faculty member. As Ph.D. students and even some M.S. students we may find ourselves seeking a career in academia.
What a strange transition to go from attending class and writing papers to teaching classes and grading papers??
Thanks to the UGA graduate school for hosting this event and Sylvia Hutchinson and Gary Green for answering all of our questions.
These brown bag events are great opportunities for grad students to ask uninhibited questions and come away with great info. The tips above are only a snippet of what was discussed during this event. Make sure to get yourself to the next brown bag!
