Best practices in graduate advising

Patrick S. Osmer — August 23, 2012

Patrick S. Osmer,
Vice Provost of Graduate Studies and Dean of the Graduate School 

One of the most productive things you can do in these first days of the semester, whether you’re a new or returning graduate student, is to establish and maintain regular communications with your advisor.

Your relationship with your advisor can have a tremendous impact on how well you progress through your graduate program, how you develop professionally, and the career options you pursue.

 Graduate advising is one of the most important activities that occur in a graduate program, and there is much that you can do to get the most from this partnership. Review our best practices guidelines for graduate advising http://www.go.osu.edu/GradAdvisingBestPractices and use them.  We worked on these guidelines in collaboration with the Council of Graduate Students last year, and this topic is one of the Graduate School’s focus areas for this year.

Be proactive in developing this relationship. Your experience as a graduate student will be stronger if you do.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.SEORankingLinks.com">Seo Plugin</a>
