What is GPS?

GPS is a one night overnight experience designed for first year graduate students to promote reflection, conversation and exploration of what it means to be a graduate student at Boston College. 

Graduate school can be a rewarding experience, but also a very challenging one. Transitioning to a new campus and academic environment, building new relationships with peers and professors, and figuring out what you will do after graduation are among some of the issues with which graduate students may struggle.

On this overnight experience, participants engage in reflection and candid conversation about what the graduate school experience is really like, and explore strategies for making it through successfully.
