On Thursday, April 12, we welcome to Middlebury four graduate students and one postdoctoral fellow from the University of Chicago. They specialize in English Language and Literature, Linguistics, Microbiology, and Sociology. They will discuss things that they wish they’d known about graduate school, including time management, combating isolation, and building community—a unique challenge for graduate students of color and first-generation college students.
Visitors: José Antonio Arellano, PhD candidate in English Language and Literature, Evelyn Campbell, PhD student Microbiology, Michael Dango, Postdoctoral Fellow in English Language and Literature, Melissa Osborne, PhD candidate in Sociology, Tran Truong, PhD candidate in Linguistics
