Beginning independent research in graduate schools can be a daunting experience. Graduate students are often in that transition period — their experiences will be very different whether they are coming straight from undergrad or have been in the work force for years and now going back to school. As such graduate students have to make adjustments and have unique needs. You are on the quest to gain more knowledge...and as they say knowledge is power! You are already a hero! Now, let some superheroes from the academic world help guide you through your quest!
