The GSS hosts at least two socials per semester. This year, we are trying to do social events monthly that are open to all graduate students. The event aims to increase awareness of the purpose and priorities of the GSS and to introduce graduate students from across disciplines.


Upcoming Socials

The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) will be meeting at a local restaurant to celebrate a happy hour together. The location and further details will be announced at a later time.

What: GSS Orientation Social
When: September 29 (4pm-6pm)
Where: TBA

Past Socials

Our orientation social was a great success. We hosted 174 graduate students at Barley’s!!! This was our biggest social turn-out to date! Graduate students also had the opportunity to mingle with Dean Thompson from the Graduate School.social1
