Welcome to the 2015 edition of the GSU Survival Guide! We’ve been at work on this guide since 2013, when some of our members realized how useful it would be to have a space for graduate students to pool our collective wisdom. This set of pages aims to be that space: a guide by grad students, for grad students about how the University of Chicago works. It was first developed by Molly Cunningham, Kaya Williams, Claire Roosien, Madeleine Elfenbein, and expanded by Abhishek Bhattacharyya, Andrew Yale, [and who else?]
In addition to using it as a resource, we hope you’ll also make time to contribute to our next edition. [Post link to survival guide feedback form]. Here you’ll find a ready-made form designed to make it easy and fun for you to to contribute to the Guide.You can also email us email@example.com or get in touch with your Departmental Organizer if you have more feedback — we would love that.
Being a graduate student at the University of Chicago can be a difficult place to be sometimes. We hope this helps.
