It’s time for Gradifying to take a little break, for five weeks. We have all had some fun exploring new issues and themes – as well as some old topics from new perspectives – that we hope have provided some information and provoked some new ideas for our readership. We’re going on hiatus to retreat, regroup, refresh, and revamp. We’ll be back with a new face in mid-August to help the SGS spread the word to new and returning grad students on activities and workshops starting in September.
This is my final post for Gradifying. I have enjoyed sharing some of my experiences in the context of trying to help some others make their way through this funny (not ha-ha funny) grad school life. Thank you to everyone who has shared their attention with these posts, and to those select few who have shared their thoughts right back at me. I would also like to thank SGS for funding this project. This is the brainchild of Colette Steer, who works tirelessly to bring resources to our Queen’s grad student community in an effort to help them develop and succeed. It makes me happy to have contributed to one of her great ideas.
The only measure of Gradifying’s success is whether it addresses the needs and wants of our Queen’s readership. Every month we put our heads together and make our best prediction on what you would all like to know about. If you’d like to let us know how we’re doing – the good, the bad, and the ugly – do feel free to leave a comment at the bottom of any post you see. Equally or more importantly, if there is a topic that you’d like to read about, put that down there too or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. This is here for you … and it would take the guesswork out of it (although that’s sometimes the funnest part. It’s a win-win for us).
Again, thank you. And we’ll be in touch soon. Have a great summer!~
