Jump to Comments



By Samara Moore, Gradlife Ambassador

Do you want to make genuine connections in grad school? Are you struggling to figure out how to balance school, work and your personal life? Do you want to get involved and take advantage of the resources on campus, but don’t know where to start? Are you feeling overwhelmed by looming deadlines? I can relate and I’m here to help!

My name is Samara and I am thrilled to be your new Gradlife Ambassador! I am a first-year Master’s student at the Factor-Inwentash Faculty of Social Work. I am also a foodie, photography fanatic, and love a good adventure –CN Tower edge walk anyone?

At Gradlife, we are here to support you through your journey at UofT! We want you to get the most out of your grad school experience! I encourage you to come out to the programs and events that we organize throughout the year.

  • Pull yourself away from your readings for an evening and come out to one of our GradEscapes.
  • Want to build your confidence and improve your communication skills? Hope to share your research with a supportive audience? Participate in one of our GradTalks.
  • Are you looking to build supportive networks with other grad students on campus? Want to connect with peers who have similar interests? Come out to our bi-weekly Grad Connection Forum.

Stay in touch with us on social media! We run contests, post about upcoming events, and share graduate specific information on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.

Visit our website for information on everything from academic and conflict support, to career and leadership development. Find out about resources for international grads and students with family responsibilities.

Grad school can be electrifying and nerve-wracking, challenging and rewarding. Please know that you are not alone -we are in this together!

If you see me on campus, say hello! I would love to meet you! For those who registered for the Games night, I’ll see you there as I will be facilitating it!

Until next time,
