Grad Student Support Series: You Can Do Hard Things!


Oct 14, 2021 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM

Holloway Hall / Bavaro 116


Taking up the trademark phrase of the NY Times bestseller Untamed by Glennon Doyle and her podcast “We Can Do Hard Things,” You Can Do Hard Things is a new graduate student-focused series, co-sponsored by the Office of Student Affairs and the Office of DEI, that series acknowledges a hard truth graduate students know too well: grad school is freaking HARD. Over the course of four sessions, Jessica Livingston (Director of Student Affairs) and Catalina Piatt-Esguerra (DEI Programs Manager) will facilitate conversations about those unexpectedly hard things that come along with graduate school: the need for self-advocacy, the role of recharging, the certainty of uncertainty, and the search for joy. You Can Do Hard Things aims to empower all our graduate students to feel a bit lighter and braver, freer and less alone through community building and honest discussion about graduate life. Join us this fall on October 14 and November 16. Light refreshments served.
