Welcome/Welcome Back Event


Do you enjoy talking about what excites you about your work, and why you do what you do? Are you looking for opportunities to tell other people all about it?

The Graduate School is asking for continuing students from any discipline, at any stage of their degree, to showcase what they are working on. This can be anything from art pieces, to research projects, to outreach and community engagement projects, to interdisciplinary initiatives, to startups, all as part of an informal, celebratory event.
