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.

Need a study break? Like to socialize with friends, meet new people, and have fun? If you answered yes to all of those questions, come join us for a Trivia Night. Don't worry, no grad student-type questions here! Come as a team already, or bring yourself and we'll make you a team with some great people. There are awesome prizes to be won, but even if your team doesn't bring home the "trophy," this event is still a great way to take a break and have fun.  Presented in partnership with the GSU.
