Getting into grad school is not the end of your resume building. Once you obtain your advanced degree, to continue in academia you will have to defend your commitment to expanding knowledge (research), diversity, and the educational process. Despite the work load, you should choose committees and services that you can volunteer on and try to forge relationships with others in your field.<br> + </span> </td> </tr> </table> </div> Graduate Studentshttp://daviswiki.org/Graduate_Students2010-05-28 12:25:34BrentLaabslink to grad studies <div id="content" class="wikipage content"> Differences for Graduate Students<p><strong></strong></p><table> <tr> <td> <span> Deletions are marked with - . </span> </td> <td> <span> Additions are marked with +. </span> </td> </tr> <tr> <td> Line 3: </td> <td> Line 3: </td> </tr> <tr> <td> <span>-</span> Grad Students are members of ["Graduate Student Association" GSA].

There are a few thousand of them in Davis. Since ["professional schools" graduate school] isn't really about taking a set number of units and requirements vary by department, they have been known to stick around for a long time. That is, until they get sick of school or funding runs out. To figure out when a grad student will graduate, ask him or her how long until they're done. Then multiply this value by 1.5 to get a good estimate.

Many of them are also ["Teaching Assistants"], and they can participate in community service through the ["Graduate Student Community Service Commitee"].<br> + <br> + You can recognize them by the fact that they are too busy with "work" to describe themselves in the Davis Wiki. They're generally more dissheveled looking than undergraduate students, as they're more concerned with academics than appearance. Another way to recognize graduate students is to go to campus on weekends and holidays. Notice that you'll see less people, but you'll still see some. To your suprise, some of those people are still acting like it's still a school day--backpacks on, hurrying about like they're about to miss a class. These are invariably graduate students.<br> + <br> + The natural habitat of a graduate student includes ["Mishka's"], ["Sophia's"], and ["Delta of Venus"]. The courtship grounds of graduate students are largely unknown.<br> + <br> + -----<br> + ''Then there are those grad students too busy describing themselves on Davis Wiki to do their work.

English Grad students don't really do anything, unless there's something I'm supposed to be doing that I don't know about. Basically, we're the people in the movie theater laughing at the movie because the plot is cliche or we see some reference to Salinger or Derrida that no one else gets. Our job is to be pretentious and look good. That's it. If there's work, no one has told me about it.'' - ["NathanMilos"]<br> + Seriously.
