What do you like about the program?
My mentor. She has been a great source of guidance and support. When I entered graduate school, I had very little research experience. She has been patient throughout the process by mentoring me in the research method. The biggest lesson that I have learn from her is to be kind through whatever obstacles may occur in life. She is patient, caring, purpose driven. I am honored to be able to work alongside her through my graduate school experience.
I am member in The Graduate School Graduate Student Council. Thus far, it has been a positive experience. It is great being apart of a council that is actively seeking to improve the experience of graduate students at this university. I enjoy being an advocate for the graduate student experience.
