Got graduate school on your mind?

Following the panel, attendants will head down to the Undergrad Lounge (LI009) for Honesty Hour (4pm-5pm) with current Classics graduate students, who will spill the tea on their research, funding, and graduate life. As always, we will have free food and tea!

Peer Mentorship

This programme aims to connect more experienced U of T students with their recently arrived colleagues. There will be several informal meetings and an exchange of contact information so that there can be a person to guide and give support as well as a chance to make new connections. There will be free snacks and/or lunches for all participants at the CLASSU-organized meet-ups. We will try and pair you with someone of similar interests. The programme will be relaunched in Fall 2019!
