Mezzanine C

Plans are underway to convert the library’s Mezzanine C to an exclusive, graduate-only floor! GSC leadership has met with a university interior designer, who is now developing detailed plans for the best possible use of the space, to include individual desks, comfortable lounge furniture, and table options.

This project has been several months in the making, and we expect to unveil the new graduate-only study space this summer!

2018 Graduate Research Symposium

The 8th Annual Graduate Research Symposium on March 20 was a great success, thanks to those who made it possible. The Graduate Student Council is grateful to the judges for volunteering their time, the presenters for their enthusiasm and dedication, and to the Associated Student Body and the Graduate School for sponsoring the event. The monetary prizes will be used to fund the students’ future research and presentations at future symposiums. Click Here for a list of this year’s winners.
