UTSA graduate students meet with AALCI Fellows

Elizabeth Cali, Aravis Thomas, Erin Ranft, and Allegra Castro
We've learned over the years that one of the most useful ways of assisting the Fellows is putting them in touch with folks who are going through and just recently completed the process of graduate school. Doing so can give students a grassroots' perspective.

That was the thinking for us organizing a panel of UTSA English department graduate students Elizabeth Cali, Aravis Thomas, and Allegra Castro as well as recent PhD graduate of the program Erin Ranft. The panelists responded to the Fellows questions about getting into graduate school, navigating the overall process, developing a balance between academic and completing the degree.  

The panelists helped us advance one of the major objectives of our Institute: demystifying graduate school and academic professions.
