Thriving in Graduate School: International Student Panel
START:     END:
612 Conference Center Carl R. Woese Institute for Genomic Biology

The transition to graduate school is even more complicated when it is also accompanied by a transition to a new country.  In this workshop, a panel of international graduate students will answer questions and share their experiences; all students are welcome to attend, but RSVP from international students will have priority.  As always, time for networking and refreshments is included.  This student-run series is funded by a grant from the IGB Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion initiative.  To sign up for our mailing list, please visit https://forms.illinois.edu/sec/398930130 and watch your email for the announcement.
