Welcome new graduate students and welcome back to our returning graduate students for the Fall 2019 semester! We are very excited to be resuming the graduate student blog for the 2019-2020 academic year.
This year we have 10 graduate students who will be blogging about their first-hand experiences in graduate studies. Follow their journey throughout the first year of their program and beyond, and get an inside look at graduate life at Memorial.
