September is behind us, funding applications are (mostly) all done with, it’s time to… work some more! Oh, the glamour of the grad student life. In the midst of everything, next week is a busy one for the GSCS! There are two events coming up:
- Thanksgiving Networking Lunch: The Department is organizing its first annual Thanksgiving Networking Lunch! Take a break from your academics and introduce yourself to colleagues around you, and enjoy some turkey and non-turkey sandwiches, cookies and drinks. Tuesday Oct 11th, 12:30-2:00 in the Lino Lounge (that’s the faculty/grad lounge near the photocopy room). The expectation is that everyone should attend, so this will be a great opportunity for grad students to introduce themselves to faculty and other students – something that doesn’t happen too often, what with our busy lives!
- GSCS meeting: We will be having our monthly-ish admin meeting on Wednesday, October 12th in room 2107. The meeting is open to anyone, so if you want to know what’s happening with your student council, give us some feedback, or make suggestions for future events, you are more than welcome to attend! Among other things, we will be hearing updates from our reps at faculty meetings and the GSS and discussing a recent meeting with Dr. Guppy.
