Welcome from GSG President Chris Castillo
The Graduate Student Government is an organization, sponsored by the Office of Graduate and Professional Education, which provides advocacy on behalf of and social and professional programming for graduate students at the University of Delaware. Every graduate student is represented in the GSG by a senator from his/her academic program, and every graduate student is welcome to participate in all GSG meetings and events. In fact, every graduate student is already a member of GSG! The ballots for GSG Senator Elections for the 2015-2016 year have been distributed, and voting is open through Monday, May 11. I encourage you to visit one of our meetings on the second Thursday of each month in 127 Memorial Hall, or consider getting involved with program planning or advocacy on one of the GSG committees.
GSG has four more events coming up to finish off the spring semester:
Tuesday, May 5 A Candlelight Vigil for Nepal — 8:00 pm on The Green just north of Memorial Hall.
Thursday, May 7 Prism’s Coming Out, an event celebrating the second anniversary of the legalization of gay marriage in Delaware, featuring the first gay couple to be married in the state — 6:00 pm in 205 Kirkbride Hall.
Monday, May 11 Brown Bag Luncheon (sponsored by the Diversity Committee), discussing opportunities for teaching and working abroad — 12:30 pm at The Speakeasy.
Friday, May 15 Meet & Greet Luau celebrating the end of the semester and the coming summer — 7:00 pm at The Speakeasy.
Please don’t hesitate to let me know if I can help you get involved with the GSG or if I can answer any questions or concerns you have.
