bookofkels_ Posted December 14, 2015 Share Posted December 14, 2015 Hi, I'm not sure if any one else has this problem, but it was an issue for me in my undergrad as well. I often see other students talking and forming good relationships with the professors in the department, but I don't know how they do it. It seems like theres so rarely any time for casual conversation or getting to know each other between classes, some of which are quite a bit bigger than I was expecting (I think there will be less of this next term, though) . In truth, haven't gone to many or the socials or get together, so I could improve on that. But even then, I default to talking to my friends who are students, and while the head of the department or the lecturers will talk to my friends, they never say anything to me. I don't know what I would even say half the time. I just know I want to have a good lasting relationship with at least one faculty member by the time I leave (and its only a one year program) because I don't have that person at my ungergrad and I really regret it. Also, we've started our dissertations yet, that's coming next term where we will choose our topic and presumably who we're working with. Ideally, I'd form a good relationship with my mentor, and that will come naturally as we work, but that didn't happen for my in my undergrad. I was nervous and akwardly formal (and I had even gotten to work with the prof that intimidated me the least...and I was still intimidated). So, any advice you might have would be incredibly helpful.
