The Professional Student

College isn't for everyone. Some people just can't stand the thought of having to read another book or write another term paper, others prefer to go out in the world and bring their dreams to reality. We, however, have found it difficult to separate ourselves from the concept of being full-time students.

After four to five years in undergrad, we decided to sign for another four+ years of graduate school. To the chagrin of our loved ones, the idea of semester cycles, continual learning and permanently dodging a 9 to 5 was too great to pass up.

"So what are you going to be? A professional student?" our parents would ask in sardonic jest.

In 2015, after spending years in denial, we final decided to embrace our calling. We present to you The Professional Student filled with all the advice, experience, and life hacks we have accumulated throughout our years in college, as graduate students, and university professors.
