Advice for New Students from Dean Kull

On September 16, 2013 by Grad Forum

Dean of Graduate Studies, F. Jon Kull ’88, talks with Dartmouth Now about his college experience and offers some advice for the undergraduate Class of 2017. His advice could also be helpful for incoming graduate students:

  • Get Outside: “Many of our students are from cities, and they’ll return to work in cities after Dartmouth. So this could be one of the few chances for them to take advantage of such natural beauty.”
  • Try to see things from a different perspective: “Whether exploring nature, making friends with people from diverse backgrounds, or traveling abroad on an FSP—it’s important to see things in a different light.”
  • Don’t be afraid to respectfully disagree: Debating is good for the learning process.”kull_advice_thumbnail
