Sociology Department Grad Student Wiki

— powered by the Diversity Committee

Welcome to the soc grad student wiki! This wiki is a space where we can pool and share all sorts of information useful to grad students.

Are you looking for funding opportunities? A summer job or an RAship? Could you do with some hints and resources from your fellow TAs? Or maybe you have an apartment that's dying to be subleased? Have a pricey stats book that needs re-selling? Look no further… you've come to the right place!

So here's how it works. . .

  1. Visit our community wiki often for tons of useful information.
  2. Edit or Create a wiki page when you have useful information to share. Include text, image and video files as well as links to external sites. Don't just email the socgrad listserv, include the information here. Our wiki makes categorizing, finding and adding information easy, by avoiding email clutter.
  3. Have questions for other students? Create a discussion thread to which others can reply quickly.
  4. Spread the word. When you land that awesome RAship, tell others how you heard of it here first!
  5. :?: Questions? Check out Wiki 101 or Email wiki help.
  6. Test your wiki skills using our Playground
