Fall Stress Relief Fair



One of the most challenging aspects of being a graduate student is juggling numerous responsibilities, such as classes, research, and teaching, while still taking the time for self-care and building a supportive community; but, don't worry! GSRC is here to help you. 

GSRC serves to support graduate students' mental, emotional, and physical health by organizing social, community-building, and stress-relieving events for all graduate students throughout the year. See below to see different types of community-building events we organize. To make sure you don't miss these events, check out the GradSuccess events calendar and read the R'Grad Weekly emails sent out every Monday morning by our Director, Hillary Jenks.

No need to be a professional artist or have art materials—just bring some paper, pencils, and whatever other coloring devices you have laying around (e.g., color pencils, pens, crayons) and get in on this action.
