About Gradlife Programs

Grad Connections

Take a break and connect with other grad students at this free, bi-weekly chat forum. Share you experiences in an informal setting, talk about your challenges and life as a graduate student. An expert staff facilitator will be available to answer questions related to each week’s theme. Look for Grad Connections programming on the Events Calendar.

Grad Escapes

Thesis avoidance with style. Relax, have fun, and meet other graduate students from outside your department while enjoying social, cultural, and recreational events. Art classes, theatre, sporting events, history tours, and more—there’s something for everyone. All activities are facilitated by a current graduate student. Look for Grad Escapes programming on the Events Calendar.
