About EGS

The Education Graduate Students blog is a collaborative, connective, and creative community featuring compositions by master’s and PhD students currently enrolled at Nipissing University. Our aim is to encourage well-being and inclusivity amongst our students beyond the forums of Blackboard. Here is the ideal place to publish your passions, or bring new perspective by sharing your experiences of graduate level work.

How Can We Enrich Your Experience?

Each and every student will have a completely different experience, due to the high personalized nature of graduate level work. Recognizing the common threads that bind us together, the content of this blog will extend to reflect the diverse needs and perspectives of our learning community.

What kinds of content would you like to see? Stories and suggestions for well-being? Employment information beyond traditional classroom positions? Explorations of hot topics in education? You name it, we’ll explore it.
