There’s more to grad school than studying

The Chronicle of Higher Education shared with graduate students tips on how to get the most out of your academic career. This open letter to graduate students encourages you to network productively within your field, but I also encourage you to expand your horizons and get to know others in your local community.

This week is full of opportunities for you to meet students from other programs and professionals of the Lowcountry.

Tuesday, the Social Media Club Charleston is hosting their Summer Social at Taco Boy Downtown. It also happens to be at the same time and in the same place as the AdFed membership drive.

Join the Charleston Young Professionals on Wednesday at O’Brion’s on James Island for their monthly networking event.

The first Graduate Student Association meeting of the semester is at 5:30 on Friday in room 409 of the Stern Center on campus. Everyone is invited to attend and let their voice be heard. Then, join us for the annual Kick-Off event at 5:30 on Saturday. We’ll be outside at the Ft. Johnson Outdoor Classroom on James Island. It’s always a great time, and a great way to start your semester.

For more ideas on things to do, pick up a copy of The Post & Courier, The Charleston City Paper, Skirt! Magazine, or any other publication usually found in a coffee shop, on a street corner, in your gym, at a restaurant, or any other public venue.
