Dartmouth graduate students serve a variety of roles on campus, from teaching assistants to collaborators in the high level of academic research being done at Dartmouth. Graduate Appreciation Week, which will take place May 2 to 7, features activities to both raise awareness of and celebrate the academic contributions that graduate students provide to the Dartmouth community.

Events include a Graduate Poster Session highlighting graduate student research, on May 2, 2011, at the Top of the Hop. On May 5, the documentary film Naturally Obsessed: The Making of a Scientist, which depicts the lives of graduate students from Columbia University in their quest to complete their PhDs, will be shown at 7 p.m. in Rockefeller 1. The screening is free and open to the public and will be followed by a discussion and reception with one of the film's subjects, Dr. Robert Townley.
