September Events and New Office/Lounge!!!

As summer is winding down, it is time to look forward to what is to come in September! The Exec have been working hard all summer to plan socials and other events for the upcoming school year for you all!

As many of you have noticed, we have been moved out of our RIC office. We have finally gained access to our new home in Campion (room 121). It's still "under construction" but we will have the room up and running for the students to use at the start of the next semester. This new space has 2 separate rooms as well as a large lounge area. We look forward to showing you this new space!

If anyone is looking for ways to become involved in the GSA this year, we are setting up a few committees for which we would like some members from the student body. These committees include:

Constitution and By-Laws Committee – aid executive members in revamping and updating the GSA constitution and by-laws

Research and Conference Committee – assisting the research conference chair in organizing the 3MT conference and associated events

Social Committee – assisting executive members in organizing social events for the graduate students

If you are interested in joining or learning more about these committees, please send an email to

Lastly, although the first month back to school always goes by in the blink of an eye, we hope that you will be able to stop by a few of our events and say hello (and eat free food!!!).
