The Graduate/Professional Student Experience From A to G

This talk will discuss various aspects of the graduate and professional student experience from prospective student to graduation.  Adversity, Burnout, Culture Shock, Direction, Exploration, Failure and Grit are all prevalent issues amongst current and potential graduate/professional students.  This talk will specifically delve into those topics as they pertain to the work carried out by graduate admissions and enrollment professionals.  Admissions and enrollment professionals are often the initial touch point for prospective student and this talk aims to equip such professionals with insights into what students are facing before, during and after deciding where to complete their training.
