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! 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. Additionally, there are several unrepresented programs, and elections for these positions will be occurring at the end of September, so stay tuned!
GSG has several upcoming events for the Fall 2015 semester:
Friday, October 9: Graduate Student Gala. This is the GSG’s premier fall semester event, and will feature food and beverages at a private gallery showing at the University Museums’ Old College Hall Gallery. Get more details, and purchase tickets ($10 each), through TicketLeap before it sells out and before midnight on Monday, October 5!
Wednesday, December 2: UD Night at Yuletide at Winterthur. Get discounted pricing on Winterthur Museum’s annual Yuletide event, and join your fellow graduate students exploring a du Pont family mansion decorated for the holidays! More details soon!
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.
