Holiday Greetings from The Graduate School!

Dear Members of The Graduate School Community,
The winter recess is a time to reflect and focus on one’s overall well-being, whether it be through social activities with family and friends, physical pursuits in the great outdoors, emotional connections with those we hold dear, or spiritual or personal moments filled with wonder and awe. No matter how you choose to enjoy the sights and sounds (and temperatures!) of the season, may your time be filled with opportunities to laugh, relax, and refresh your senses for the coming year.

In each season, The Graduate School is here to connect you with the resources and tools you need to thrive. I am incredibly proud of the many accomplishments, past and present, of our graduate and postdoctoral community. This is especially true as we celebrate 150 Years of Women at Northwestern. Thank you for the many ways in which each of you contribute to good in the world and for being instruments of new knowledge, wisdom, and innovation.
I hope the weeks ahead bring renewed camaraderie and good cheer within your academic community and your circle of loved ones.
Wishing you wellness and joy.

My best!
