Grad Talk: Dealing with Awkward Conversations during your Grad Program
Grad school can be full of awkward moments and missed opportunities. Ever walked away from a conversation wondering, “What just happened?” Ever seen a faculty member outside of class or the lab and walked past them while staring at the ground? Ever attended a department event and asked yourself, “What am I doing here?” Join G2G Peer Advisors from the Graduate Conflict Resolution Centre(CRC) for a frank discussion about conflicting expectations, awkward conversations, and the blurry boundary between social life and professional life. Pizza will be available.
