Hello friends in ESM!
To kick off the Fall 2018 semester, the Ecosystem Science and Management Graduate Student Organization (ESM GSO) will be hosting our annual Fall Picnic. Join friends and colleagues for lively games, fascinating conversation and delectable cuisine. Family and friends are welcome to attend.
The picnic is to be held in Sunset Park, on McKee street north of campus. Festivities will begin at 6:30 PM. The GSO will provide burgers (including a vegetarian option), hot-dogs and drinks. Please bring a side or dessert to share, and feel free to bring your own re-usable utensils. (plastic/paper-ware will also be provided).
We hope to see you there!
