Are you planning to attend an academic conference this year but are unsure about the dinners, cocktail hours, and other social events? Come to Lakeside Commons for an informal and informative gathering devoted to preparing for the social aspects of academic conferences. Having strategies going into a conference can make the experience less stressful and more rewarding. Commiserate with fellow graduate students as we cover everything from practicing your dissertation pitch to sending follow-up emails. Refreshments will be served. This event is free and open to all graduate students. To sign up, please email
