October 5 GC: From Students To Scholars Podcast Series

From Students To Scholars is a podcast series that provides peer mentoring to Graduate Center doctoral students and helps them prepare for the careers to which they aspire. Each episode is themed and tackles specific aspects of graduate education, ranging from long-term planning and fieldwork to minority challenges. For each episode, we invite Level 3 students and/or alumnae to discuss the challenges, stories, and successes that they faced during their time here at the Graduate Center.
