In a previous blog post, I discussed the differences between grad and undergrad. To give you a more in-depth look, I want to give you a firsthand look into my life as graduate student at Florida Tech. What better way to do this than to use pictures to show what my average day looks like?
My mornings tend to start a bit early because I have the unique opportunity to not only be a grad student, but also a Florida Tech women’s lacrosse player. It is unusual to see a grad student play a NCAA Division II sport, but I still had a couple of years worth of eligibility left and decided, “Why not?!”
When it comes down to it, my day is not too different from other grad students on campus. Time management is something you master in grad school because you are only accountable for yourself. Homework and research is not given a structured time until you decide to put time aside to get it done. But I promise that if you manage your time wisely, there will be time for beach breaks and adventures.
