Graduate school advising events for science majors

Posted: September 27, 2013

Are you considering going to graduate school in the sciences? If so, plan to attend an upcoming lunch to find out more about the application process and how to succeed as a graduate student.

Friday, October 4

12:00-1:00pm, Collins Fishbowl (CMC dining hall)
Q&A Lunch with CMC alumnus Nate Peters (2006)
PhD Candidate in Molecular Biology at University of Washington

Nate is eager to share his experiences of transitioning from life at the Claremont Colleges to graduate school. Get your lunch and join him and other students in the Fishbowl. Ask the attendant at the dining hall entrance for directions if you do not know where the Fishbowl is.

Keck Science Faculty Advising Lunches

The details of the search and application process as well as the graduate school experience itself vary among disciplines. Here is a chance for you to meet with faculty in your field of interest to ask questions and gain insights into whether graduate school is a good fit for you, the process of getting in, and tips for being successful as a graduate student. Just go to the specified dining hall (Scripps, CMC or Pitzer) within the time frame listed and look for the table with a sign reading “Graduate School Advising Lunch.” Friendly Keck Science faculty will be there to answer your questions!
