Grad Escapes

​​Grad Escapes 

Grad school can be hard work -- sometimes you just need to escape. To help you, the Graduate Students' Union and Student Life started Grad Escapes.This program helps to build community among fellow students by offering social, cultural, and recreational opportunities to relieve graduate student stress.

From art classes to baseball, from musical theatre to historic tours, there's something for everyone. So, forget your thesis for a night, try a new experience, and meet fellow students. Come with a partner, a friend, or come alone! Student families are welcome.
