Hello all,
I hope everyone is having a great time!!! Enjoy the great opportunity that PROMISE is providing to build and improve the sense of community among graduate students.

To everyone in their first or second year in grad school, please use the time to meet other graduate students, share experiences, and get advice from more experienced students.  

For those at the dissertation house... as Dr. Hrabowski always says “Focus! Focus! Focus! Use the time to set goals, set personal deadlines, and create a schedule for next month, for the spring semester, for the summer, and for the rest of the year. For my two computer science colleagues (Patti & Robert), use the opportunity to set goals and a schedule to make sure both of you are PhD candidates before the end of the spring semester. Enjoy. -Jesus Caban Computer Science
