On Friday, March 10th, 2023, the Skyline College chapter of Psi Beta, a Community College National Honor Society in Psychology, hosted a panel discussion titled “From Community College to Graduate School.” Three speakers – one of whom was a Skyline College alumnus – shared valuable information with us including descriptions of their graduate programs, the path they took to get into the programs, how they coped with challenges, and ideas about getting experience in the field. They also shared the importance of exploration before declaring a major and encouraged attendees to enjoy the journey of the educational process as opposed to focusing on a set timeline. Lastly, they emphasized the importance of utilizing resources, asking for help, finding community, and being careful to not compare yourself to others. This panel was hosted by Psi Beta member Cristel Cayco and moderated by Psi Beta member Vladimir Zeltser.
