The most beneficial aspect during my first year in the Educational Psychology Ph.D. program was definitely the access I've had to productive faculty researchers. From being available for professional advice to providing teaching and research opportunities, the faculty are invested in ensuring I become a competitive Purdue alum upon graduation. Additionally, the Holmes Scholars Program and the Black Graduate Student Association have provided social and professional supports for my transition into graduate studies as a minority student.
