GSHC Social Events
We understand that social interaction is essential to the life of the graduate student, and it is an area that can become atrophied under the constraints of study and research. The Community provides monthly social activities to facilitate building new relationships between neighbors, and we encourage our members to bring friends to the events.
A great opportunity to catch up with neighbors or friends after the summer hiatus, and to meet new residents at the Quad. The annual BBQ is the first community event of the year, as we enjoy hot dogs, hamburgers, and veggie burgers around the pool.
A night of games, food, and fun. We get together as a community to play board games provided by the community. Some of the past favorites include Settlers of Catan, Taboo, Ticket to Ride, Monopoly, varieties of card games, and many more.
