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.  

Community-building Events

  • Coffee Socials

    GSRC hosts a Graduate Student Coffee Social each week for graduate students across the campus. We provide freshly made coffee and tea while our generous sponsors within the university serve snacks and raffle prizes.

    Coffee socials are held every Wednesday (except the week of Thanksgiving and Finals Week) from 3-4 pm in the Graduate Student Lounge (HUB 383). Join us for cross-discipline networking and socializing!

  • Stress Relief Fair

    GSRC collaborates with The Well to offer a Stress Relief Fair for all graduate students from 4:30-6:30pm on the fourth Tuesday of each quarter (including summer!). Join us to relax, eat good food with friends, get a chair massage (as available), participate in fun arts & crafts activities, and pet therapy animals (as available).

  • Chill-out Sessions

    GSRC also collaborates with The Well to offer Grad Student Chill-Out Sessions at different times throughout the quarter. In these sessions, we offer a nice, quiet place for graduate students to take a nap, have coffee/tea and healthy snacks, and participate in relaxing art activities.
