Growing Up in Science

03/07/2019 - 12:30pm to 2:00pm
Eckert Sea Cave
Event Description: 
Please join us for this wonderful GUIS event next week, featuring Dr. Noelle Bowlin!
Have you ever wondered what your advisor or committee member struggled with as a graduate student? What they struggle with now? Growing up in science is a conversation series that is not about science, but about becoming and being a scientist. At each event, one faculty member shares their life story, with a focus on struggles, failures, doubts, detours, and weaknesses. 
Common topics include dealing with expectations (your own and others), impostor syndrome, procrastination, the role of luck, rejection, and conflicts with advisors, but these topics are always embedded in the speaker's broader narrative. For more info on the series origination, see
