Back by popular demand, the 2nd Not-So-Annual ESM GSO Bocce Ball tournament will be Friday, September 15th on the lawn in front of FRB from 1230-130.

Please respond with the following by next Friday, September 8:

1) If you would like to participate (If yes, note whether you are grad student, faculty, or staff)

2) If you have a bocce ball set you are willing to lend for the tournament

Can’t wait!

ESM Fall Picnic

Come one, come all to the ESM Fall Picnic to see all the lovely faces you’ve been missing all summer (and hopefully meet some new people)!
Our fall picnic will be Tuesday, August 22nd from 5:00 – 8:00 PM at Sunset Park.  All faculty, staff, graduate students, and their families are invited. It is a potluck style so please bring a side dish or dessert to share! The GSO will provide burgers/hotdogs/veggie burgers as well as games and activities.
Hope to see you all there!

New Student Checklist Created

For most new students, a significant amount of time is spent on gathering the on-boarding information they need to become an “official” graduate student. With input from the administrative staff and faculty, we have put together a succinct checklist that puts all the important information into one place. Currently, the plan is to send out this checklist to new students once they have accepted their positions in the ESM department. Thanks to everyone who helped create this document!
