Dear Graduate Students,
Happy Holidays! You’re so awesome, and we love working for you! We hope you get to take some time off. The GSS office will be closed between December 20th, 2014 and January 4th, 2015.
Are we ever excited for the New Year! We’ve got some highlights lined up already. We look forward to seeing you then!
GSS Social & Recreational
– Spend sometime this break preparing your entry into our inaugural GSS Video Clip Competition! Showcase your country and culture via a 3-10minute video made up of photographs and music from home. Guidelines and resources to get you going are on our website. Participate! No subject is too familiar, no place too distant (or near).
– Our first Whistler trip of the season is a GO! Details for the January 24th, 2015 trip are up on our website, and Registration opens on Friday! We’ve got four packages on offer for Grad students and Non-Grad students. Opt to take us up on our Bus ride offer, and include a Lift Ticket, Equipment Rental and Lesson as you need. Consider your options and make a decision soon – tickets ALWAYS sell out fast!
– Sign up for our fitness classes next term! You’ll have your choice of Zumba, Yoga, Pilates and our brand new Dance Diversity class! What’s our Dance Diversity Class, you ask?! Only a chance to try up to 10 different styles of dance! Each weekly session is devoted to a different dance style– salsa, bellydance, bachata, reggaeton and more! In Dance Diversity, the dancers are never bored! Time waits for no one, friends!
– Grow your skillset with our French 101 and 102 Classes! Our 101 Introduction class offers a beginner’s chance at French, while 102 expands on that initial experience especially in conversation. Check out the details and sign up!
– Let’s start the term right on Thursday, January 8th! Join new and current students for our Winter Wine & Cheese night at the GSS Penthouse starting at 7pm. Come one and all! Look out for more information in the first week of January.
