The next GSA Social is tentatively planned on Thursday Sept 15th on NVC 14-220.

Look for roundtable sessions that Frank Fletcher is organizing regarding the Academic Excellence Fee.

This weekend marks the 10-year mark of 9/11. You will find  a vigil with spoken word, a few performance and speakers around campus.

A student lounge open to ALL graduate students is now open on the third floor — NVC 3257. It’s stark and needs a warm touch.  Send comments and contributions to the GSA.

There are open positions on the GSA.  Contact Leon Fischman if you are interested in serving your fellow graduate students, influencing the institution and building your leadership skills.

Overwhelmed by all the events on campus.  Watch the google event calendar on the GCMC.
