The Graduate School Survival Guide is CRC's first zine! We wanted to put together a pragmatic, engaging, and fun guide to incoming and current graduate students on navigating the opportunities and challenges of graduate school and Boulder. We want it to be a feast for the mind and heart. The zine contains information about:
- Work and School: the issues of working and living in a high-cost area; how the university classifies graduate workers; available resources and where to seek advice when you encounter different graduate school problems; etc.
- Housing: Boulder-area housing costs and ordinances; highlights of Colorado tenants' rights; low-cost and legal resources for housing; CRC's efforts at addressing the affordable housing problem; etc.
- Health: where to go for different health situations; benefits that are and are not covered by the Gold Health Insurance Plan; resources outside the university healthcare system; etc.
- Avoiding the Burnout: advice and real talk from current graduate students and Boulder residents.
We would like to make more zines. So email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your feedback and suggestions for future zine ideas and topics! Or better yet, help us make one!
