About GradLife

The GradLife Blog

McGill’s GradLife blog is an initiative supported by Teaching and Learning Services (TLS) and Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies (GPS).

The blog was originally launched by GPS in 2010. The mission of GradLife McGill is to showcase graduate students’ own experiences and to foster a sense of community across departments and disciplines. Posts portray students’ personal reflections, aspirations, triumphs, challenges and resources associated with their graduate journey.

As of summer 2016, the initiative will be extended to include McGill Graduate Alumni who are invited to contribute a special monthly feature to the AfterGradLife blog to share their stories of life beyond the McGill gates.

The GradLife Social Media Platform

The blog is the central element of a larger GradLife Social Media Team, currently comprised of bloggers, video bloggers, and Instagrammers.

The mission of GradLife Social Media Platform is to engage the graduate student community by delivering original, up-to-date student-generated content through social media channels most commonly utilized by graduate students in their everyday lives. Creativity, independence, and community are central to us.
