Whether you care to openly admit it or not, grad school has probably felt like a sledgehammer repeatedly slamming into your face and soul. Spend an hour (followed by Q&A) with Lego Grad Student as he attempts to explain why this is a perfectly normal – but not inevitable – feeling, and offers painfully learned advice on how you can manage it. Register here.

This event is cosponsored by GradFest and Night Out / Night Off for Graduate Students of Color.
