Due to uncertain conditions from Hurricane Florence, the bootcamp has been rescheduled for Saturday, Sep 29th.
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 these students have to make adjustments and have unique needs.
