Graduate Study/Academic Careers: January 30

Several University offices (Ben Franklin Scholars/General Honors Program, Career Planning and Placement Service, The College, and the Office of International Programs) have joined forces to present the Fourth Annual Graduate Study and Academic Careers Series.

These panels, open to all students, are designed to help undergraduates who are considering graduate study explore important issues, such as financing for graduate study, surviving the graduate school experience, and career options for Ph.D.'s.

The first panel discussion, Getting Money for Your Brains, will take place on January 30 at 4-5:30 p.m. in the Ben Franklin Room, Houston Hall. The panel will include Beau Ances, Penn B.A. and M.D./Ph.D. student (Thouron); Katie Conrad, Penn Ph.D. student in English (Mellow, Javits, Fulbright Ireland Alternate, and NEH Younger Scholars Award); Dr. Larry Hunter, Penn B.S. and Penn Assistant Professor of Management (Truman and Thouron); Theresa Simmonds, Penn B.A. (Rhodes and Truman).
