Grad Student Fun

Did you know that Tufts has a  Graduate Student Council, which aims to bring together graduate students from arts, sciences, and engineering? The council’s new video promotes the fun, interesting, and helpful activities they plan throughout the year – social events  like an apple picking trip and pub nights, community outreach including a holiday food drive, and student advocacy and career development events.

Graduate students can also always gather in the GSC Student Lounge in the basement of West Hall. So head to West Hall to meet your fellow graduate students and we’ll see you on the apple picking trip!

Graduate Student Research Abroad

Tufts’ Graduate School of Arts & Sciences (GSAS) blog is a wealth of information and advice for students currently enrolled in graduate school. Their most recent pearls of wisdom discuss the topic of going abroad for research. The blog post goes into detail about staying focused on your project, absorbing culture, and reaching out to colleagues and friends who have visited the area before. The post highlights short quotes from other students and professors who have experience with abroad research, such as student Philip Mallon’s, E17, who stressed the importance of time:

For about a week after I arrived, I traveled around the area, settled my housing, and got to know the transit system. Taking the time to become comfortable with the area made a big difference.
