The Importance of a Heartfelt Thank You 

Every once in a while, give your village a shout out. It is important to remember people who support your success and growth. Continuously let people know that you greatly appreciate their advice and time they invested in you.

Send faculty members and other advisors emails or hand-written letters, letting them know about your recent achievements and asking how they are faring. Give them the news in person, if possible. Let your recommender(s) and advisor(s) know when you receive acceptances to graduate programs and/or fellowship opportunities. Maintain communication beyond your time at UCF. Many of these faculty mentors will become your colleagues in the field.
