Join us at the GSS Coffee Hour!

Before all the chaos and stress of final exams, join us for a relaxing Saturday morning brunch and coffee break from 10am until noon in Trabant 206. This event is open to all graduate students, so be sure to spread the news to your friends and colleagues!

The location has been moved to room 206 in Trabant due to limted access to Townsend Hall on Saturday because of the UD football game. There is a parking garage located behind Trabant if parking is a concern, and there are gold parking lots located near the Little Bob and north of the railroad track on North College Ave.

There will be a FREE light breakfast, coffee, and hot chocolate! Feel free to bring your laptop if you want to get some work done...or simply bring yourself and enjoy the company. Good luck with your work and hope to see you all there!!

New GSS Committee Formed!

At the October GSS meeting, a new Ad Hoc Committee was formed to investigate the pros and cons of a possible mandatory student activity fee for graduate students at UD.  Over the years, there has been much discussion about the issue of "the fee" and now, GSS members will be seriously looking into it.

The very first meeting of the Committee will take place Friday, November 5th at 5pm in Townsend Hall Commons.  At this meeting, committee chair(s) will be elected and an action plan for the committee will begin to be determined.  Please come to this meeting if you are interested in this topic and would like to be involved!  It is open to all UD grad students.
