Upcoming Events

Graduate Student Senate (GSS) is hosting a picnic invoking ‘end-of-Summer/Beach vibes’ on the South Quad on Thursday, August 25th from 4-7pm. There will be games, trivia, prizes, and of course, opportunities to mingle with your new and returning graduate colleagues from departments across the university. Lizzie’s Curbside, the delicious catering company that has been a staple in the UCONN community for over 25 years, will be providing food for the event. All Graduate Students with valid UCONN IDs may attend.

After swiping in, attendees will be given a wristband (redeemable for free dinner) and GSS will give out picnic blankets to the first 60 guests for lounging with friends. While supplies last, guests will also be able pose in front of a pop-up beach backdrop and receive Polaroid Instant photos to keep!
