  • Institutional check or money orders are not accepted as a form of payment for cluster booths.

  • Postdoctoral fellows offer the above as well as personal perspectives on staying focused on research, working with mentors, completing graduate school, seeking postdoctoral opportunities, etc.
  • Graduate students share information about courses, mentors, research opportunities, campus environment, social life, and networks, as well as how to best manage time in the first two years of graduate school.
