Shawnee State University will be hosting a graduate school forum for students from 3 to 4 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 21 in the Library Alcove.
"At the forum we will have a panel of individuals who have been through the graduate school experience," Steve Gregory, director of Career Services said. "The panel members have experience with various universities and programs."
During the forum, panelists will discuss many issues about graduate school. The forum will provide open discussion about any issues or questions about graduate school from those attending.
Topics include how to prepare for graduate school, college entrance exams, financial aid, assistantships, fellowships, essays, letters of recommendation and the application process.
The panel members have experience with various universities and programs. Some have gone through the traditional on-campus format while others have gone to school online. Each panelist will give a brief account of their unique experiences while attending graduate school.
"My hope is that students who are still possibly a couple of years away from graduation will attend to be sure that they are doing the things they need to do before they are seniors," Gregory said. "This includes taking the appropriate classes, being involved in activities, maintaining above average grades and creating good relationships with faculty members, among other things. Waiting until the senior year to do most of these things is too late."
