Peer support the key to postgrad success

Masters of Philosophy student Riley Buchannan said the close-knit community of postgrad students helped make her Notre Dame experience “spectacular”.

“It can be easy to feel a little isolated when you’re doing your postgrad and it was so lovely to be around people who had the same interests as you and who you could nerd out with,” Riley said.

Interested in the use of art and photography in the depiction of historical events and violence, Riley completed her Masters degree in July 2018 but still sees herself as part of the Notre Dame community.

“I can’t really imagine what life without Notre Dame would be like.”
