The Berkeley Graduate The Berkeley Graduate, the Graduate Assembly-sponsored publication, is always looking for guest columnists. They welcome columns from Berkeley graduate and professional students on a wide variety of topics related to student life, research, and involvement in the wider community. Columns may range from how to survive and thrive as a graduate or professional student to the latest research in your department. They especially encourage topics that document or facilitate interaction and understanding across departments. The goal of The Berkeley Graduate is to inform and inspire graduate students by connecting them to a campus-wide community online. By tapping into the collective knowledge of this body of students, they hope students learn from each other how to make the most of their time as Berkeley students; to highlight exciting, interdisciplinary, or collaborative research at Berkeley; and to encourage participation in the broader community through outreach and volunteer work.
