Welcome to Fall Quarter!

By Dawn Loyola |

Can you believe fall quarter is already here? It seems like just a moment ago, we were in the middle of the summer heat. It’s subtle, but the change of seasons is in the air, and fall is here in California – cooler nights, milder days, and soon some of the leaves will change color. 

The beginning of fall quarter also marks the start of the academic year at UCR. Life is busy as a graduate student, and you can get pulled in many directions with academic obligations, work on- and off-campus, and your personal life. It can be overwhelming, but never fear! GradSuccess has many offerings to help you through the transition back to the academic year.
