GradPad Guidelines

Throughout the semester, the Graduate Student Association’s Social Committee hosts Movie & Game Night in the GradPad. The event is an opportunity for graduate students to take a break, get out of the lab and watch a movie or play board games. Popcorn, snacks and drinks are provided at the events.
