After experiencing my first full week of MAIT Graduate courses at The Richard Stockton College of New Jersey I have learned a few things... 

  • Don't bite off more than you can chew, and plan to be BUSY!
  • There is a TON of help out there.... ASK FOR IT!
  • Do not procrastinate, the work load will build up quickly, and only gets heavier. 
  • Be prepared on Day 1.... blast off!
  • Introduce to yourself to your professors and classmates, you will be with them for a few years, you better get to know them. 
  • Do not be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and try something NEW, that is called learning, and this is the place to do it. 
  • Make sure you have the all the tools you need to complete your assignments, test them, make sure everything works. 
  • Speak to your advisor about your work load, make sure you can handle it with your work and day to day life as well. They will be honest with you. 
  • Have fun! 
  • Get to work!
I wasn't sure where to begin, but after my first week I have a much better idea of how to START! Good luck everyone, and here is a good bit of advice to a beginning Graduate Student. 


  1. I really like your list of what you learned because it is so positive and has some great suggestions for future graduate students. I think we're all going to be working a lot but having a lot of fun along the way!

  2. Enjoy the ride as it will not last long. Don't be afraid to ask for help!!
    You love a good challenge, this is just like the rest. You will conquer and be successful!!!

  3. Awesome list Kellee! For your first week of grad classes, it seems like you have a good grasp of ways we will succeed. I am right there with you at the start line. Thanks for the inspiration!
