Welcome to Fall 2016!

The Fall semester is nearly upon is, and the Graduate Student Organization already has some big plans for the semester!

Coffee Hour will start up again on Tuesday, Aug. 23rd from 10-11am in 231 FRB. This is a reoccurring weekly event allowing us to come together, enjoy some caffeine and goodies, and catch up with our fellow graduate students and engage the faculty. Just as we did previously, coffee hour will alternate weekly between FRB (room TBD each week) and 405 ASI.

Happy Hour will be returning as well, two times each month! The first will be the first Thursday of every month (note: except the first, see schedule change below) from 4-5pm at locations TBD. The second will be later in the month and also a little later in the evening (~6pm). We plan to do some more interdepartmental evenings, so let us know if you have any suggestions.

We also have a general body meeting for all ESM graduate students scheduled Thursday, September 8th in 217 FRB from 4-5pm followed by our first Happy Hour of the semester from 5-6pm. We’ll be discussing the GSO’s plans for the semester and more exciting events to come, so make sure to join us. Details TBD as we get closer, so make sure to check back!

Need some additional events to keep you happy with the semester starting? The Chili Cook-off will be returning by popular demand November 15th from 11:30am-1:30pm (in 217 FRB) along with some additional exciting events currently in the works!

Weekly emails will be sent out to remind everyone of all of these upcoming events.

Happy Fall 2016!
