In 2012, Campus Life saw foreign students documenting their experiences in the uniquely bizarre world of MIT, insightful stories by graduate students showing us that contrary to what we’ve all learned from PhD Comics, graduate school may not actually be an endless cycle of despair, and some generally great advice from your fellow students.

Looking back, we’d like to bring forward some of these golden tips again so that we all survive another year without suffering from malnutrition on a student’s budget and maybe, just this once, actually fulfill our New Year’s resolutions of getting in shape. Who knows, some of us might even be inspired to give grad school a shot! Crazier things have happened.
