How to deal with faculty

  • Do treat them as busy professionals
  • Don't drop in on them for help or advising without arranging a suitable time [personally, I don't like this one because I prefer an open door policy, but it's in there -- AR.]
  • Do make sure to be open to constructive criticism
  • Don't take every negative comment as a personal attack
  • Do take the initiative to build a solid foundation of support
  • Don't expect the faculty or other graduate students to seek out individuals
  • Do treat everyone with respect and honesty
  • Don't try to manipulate; this is risky and it won't work
  • Be prepared and participate in discussions
