- September 15: Researching Grad Schools & the Application Process

“One of the goals of Illinois State’s Career Center is to assist students with their career and educational goals,” said Maureen Roach, Career Center senior assistant director. “The Graduate School Series educates students about graduate school so they have what they need to make a well-informed decision about additional learning and if graduate school is for them.
“Students can also visit the Career Center for additional advice and support anytime during their decision process. After all, when students consider graduate school they’re not just making an educational choice, they’re making a significant investment in their future. And we’re here to help.”
The Career Center supports Illinois State University’s Educating Illinois by assisting students with developing, evaluating and/or implementing career, education and employment decisions.
