Grad Help Workshops

Grad Help workshops are workshops delivered by peer mentors, that is graduate students with some graduate school under their belt that volunteer to help their fellow grad students.  The workshops are on academic topics that the peer mentor has experience in. We also occasionally offer workshops by faculty and recent PhDs. These workshops are delivered from September to March.
