Write encouraging notes, such as “Have you ever considered grad school?”, for undergraduate students who consistently do well in class to get them thinking about exciting postgrad opportunities like graduate school.

  • When mentoring undergraduate students, it’s important to commend them when they’re consistently doing extremely well.
    • Let students know how many opportunities can result from their consistent, good work.
  • If you think a student would perform well in graduate school, write an encouraging note on their test or assignment to boost their morale.
    • Sometimes, simply asking students if they’ve considering graduate school may get them to consider it as a real possibility.
