Dear Grad Student

Dear Grad Student

by

A podcast for celebration, commiseration, and support through grad school for the students who are living it (or want to). Join Elana Gloger, a full-time 4th year doctoral student and part-time human, as she chats with fellow grad students about their professional and personal experiences, without taking either too seriously. Episodes include conversations about students’ Day in the Life, conversations about Diverse Identities and Racism in Academia, and themed episodes (like, Mental Health in Grad School or Resources for Efficiency). As grad students, we all love what we do, struggle with what we do, need support through what we do, and should be celebrated for what we do and ‘Dear Grad Student’ is the place for it all.

In this episode of Dear Grad Student, Elana chats with 1st year Psychology Master’s Student, Kara Eversole, about the unwritten rules of grad school. They discuss becoming comfortable with the uncomfortable, prioritizing projects & tailoring your career, boundaries, and taking care of the soul.
