Mapping Out The Future

GWU GPS Week Helps Students Prepare for Graduate School

Many students have questions about the benefits of grad school. The Gardner-Webb Graduate and Professional School Fair is a fantastic opportunity to learn more. The free event will be held on Sept. 22 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Faith Hall in Tucker Student Center (TSC) on the GWU main campus.

“It’s a great event for all students – those thinking that they may want to look at graduate school in the future and those who are ready to apply,” shares Erin Cook, GWU Associate Director of Personal and Professional Development. “We have a variety of colleges and universities that attend with all sorts of programs, so it is a great way to learn about options and explore.”

Around 15 schools will be represented at the fair, including GWU grad programs and the School of Divinity. This fair is part of a week-long series of events called Graduate Preparation Series (GPS) Week. Its purpose is to help students who are interested in furthering their educations to prepare for the next steps. Other activities include three workshops which will be held in the TSC Theater. The schedule includes:

Sept. 18 at 6 p.m. – Application process
Sept. 20 at 3 p.m. – Paying for grad school
Sept. 21 at 9:25 a.m. – Refining your purpose towards goals and the future.
