Buhay Grad Student: Personal Narratives of Intellectual Journeys
Jen Agapito, Neithan Casano, Christine Tablatin, Emily Sumampong Tabanao
A growing body of literature reports that graduate students suffer from mental, emotional, and psychological distress in the course of completing their studies. The academic work, personal pressures, feelings of isolation, and other factors bring pressure to bear on students, taxing their relationships and personal well-being.
In an attempt to reassure their peers, four members of the Ateneo Laboratory for the Learning Sciences share the personal challenges that they confronted and continue to confront as they fulfill their academic requirements. They will share their own ways of coping with these challenges, to offer comfort and a sense of community among fellow graduate students who may be in similar situations.
