Happy Summer! Summer Resources


Summer has arrived! Congratulations to new graduates and safe travels to all. The Office of Graduate Studies and Postdoctoral Affairs wishes you a good summer and suggests checking out these resources for tips on how to make the most of your summer:

Chronicle of Higher Education: How New Graduate Students Should Spend Summers

Inside Higher Ed: How Graduate Students Can Get the Most Out of the Summer

Summer is a great time to take stock of your career goals and set yourself up for the job search, whether academic or non-academic. See the Graduate Career Development page for advice for UVa. students, including tips on starting the academic job search and the job search for careers outside academia.

If you're staying in Charlottesville, it's also a great time to explore your community! Charlottesville and Albemarle County have many opportunities for exploration and fun. There are also many on-Grounds volunteer opportunities as well as nonprofits in the greater Charlottesville community.

Have a relaxing and productive summer!
