Advice to new graduate students

You are starting a new graduate program in the Fall.  What better time to seek out some advice from scholars who have been down this road before you?

We highly recommend the blog post from our very own Grad Center student, Danica Savonick entitled Dear Fellow Graduate Student.   Additionally, we recommend reading two great articles for new graduate students appeared that appeared in The Chronicle several years ago: An Open Letter to New Graduate Students and Too Much Self-Doubt? Try Thinking Like a Creator.

And while you haven’t even started yet, here is a short article giving some great advice on how not to become a PhD non-completer.

Have you read any advice about starting graduate school that you’d like to share with other incoming students?  Post a link in the comments section!
