Welcome from UD GSG President Chris Castillo
Greetings! I hope your spring semester has been both smooth and productive so far, even if the weather isn’t quite making it feel like a “spring” semester just yet. If you’re looking for a little excitement beyond the snow, I would encourage you to come to a Graduate Student Government (GSG) event. Coming up on Tuesday, April 21 is the Fifth Annual Graduate Research Forum. This is GSG’s flagship event where UD graduate students get to share their research with the University Community. I encourage you to stop by and listen in on some of the talks in the afternoon, browse the 60+ posters in the poster session at 5:00, or attend the evening dinner to hear four student plenary speakers and a keynote address from Dr. Ralph Cope, President of Accudyne Systems. You can visit the conference website for more information.
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.
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.
