Creating more close-knit academic communities can be a challenge — but we've responded to your feedback with our Graduate Student Engagement events, which provide an opportunity for both current and prospective grad students to network and discuss their academic careers in a fun, relaxed setting. These events include meet-and-greet breakfasts and dinners, online happy hours, and roundtable discussions with industry leaders, fellow students, faculty, and GWSB leadership.
