GLC Open House 2012

The Graduate School will host an open house in the nationally recognized, award-winning Graduate Life Center (GLC) on Friday, October 19, from 10:00am to 3:00pm. Students, faculty, staff, and community members are invited to attend to learn more about the services and spaces the facility offers.

The open house will include the following activities and opportunities:

  • Tours of the GLC, including residential floors
  • Scavenger hunt with prizes
  • Information about graduate-student services in the GLC, including career advising, writing support, statistical consulting, library services and counseling

  • Light refreshments provided by ABP

The GLC is the first graduate facility of its kind in the nation. A joint venture of the Graduate School, Housing and Residence Life, and Student Centers and Activities, the center offers academic, administrative, professional, residential, and social spaces to promote graduate education and graduate community.

Graduate School Student Services Area New Business Hours

The Graduate School’s student services and advising area (120 GLC suite) will operate with new business hours starting Oct 1. On Wednesdays the service area will open at 9:30am and close at 6:00pm. This is a pilot program for the fall semester; at the end of fall we will evaluate the impact of this change and decide whether to continue with altered hours or return to an 8-5/M-F schedule. A secure drop-box has been installed at the entrance to the service area for students, faculty and staff to drop off forms when our service area is closed.
