Mentoring and Social Program for First Year Grad students

First year Math PhD and MLB students: consider joining the Fall 2020 edition of SUBgroups. Registration is now open.  Older students, please share with your friends and mentees to help spread the word!

SUBgroups is an opportunity for first-year math grad students to connect with their peers at other universities. Small groups meet online to support each other as they adjust to graduate student life.

In 2019, 60 first-year students participated in SUBgroups from a wide array of programs around the country. Here’s just one quote from the large collection of positive feedback:  “I felt like I was able to learn a lot about other peoples’ experiences and that helped make me feel that I was not alone.”
