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! We are here to help you.
The Graduate Student Resource Center (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, Dr. Dawn Loyola.
Here is an overview of the different community-building events that the GSRC organizes throughout the quarter. Click on the event you want to know more about!

Stress Relief Fair
Grad Students, get your stress relief on! Each quarter (and summer, too) our Stress Relief Fair returns with free food, games, and the chance to relax and take it easy for two hours. There will be great food and activities designed to reduce your stress levels and help get you through the rest of the quarter. This event is organized in collaboration with The Well.
