Tomorrow: Welcome back social from 3:30-5:30 in HPER 235 and 239 (bring something to eat to share)

Please be reminded that the New and Returning Grad Students, Faculty, and Staff Social will take place tomorrow on Tuesday, August 16, from 3:30-5:30 in HPER 235 and 239.

For this potluck-style social, we would like to ask returning graduate students to bring a small dish to share, if possible.

The faculty will also bring food and drinks.

Thank you for helping to welcome our new students. They are excited (and probably a bit nervous) to meet everyone.

If you have any questions, please email
