Hydrophiles, river trips, great professors, some great classes, my fellow graduate students.
Apply for grants (big and small); go to meetings (apply for travel support; big and small awards); be seen and share your research; take all feedback on your research as constructive and use it to improve your work and motivate you (academia is full of critical reviews and you must stay positive in light of the critisism...the criticism comes from a positive perspective to help you improve); set up situations for you to interact with the other WRGP students and faculty (e.g., organize social events or organize a reading group); take the hard classes; look across campus for interesting classes and collaborations; take more quantitative classes when possible; learn how to program in a computational language (e.g., R, Matlab), regardless of your research interests; write, review, and write more (writing is your primary form of communication for the rest of your life so get the opportunity to become great at it); take time to learn about the many career avenues in front of you (think outside the box for options); find a few career goals and learn how to position yourself to achieve them (i.e., read about them, talk to people about them, network into them).
I currently have no images uploaded.
