Graduate Student Survey

You will be receiving an invitation this month to complete the Graduate Student Survey. This survey is only administered once every three years, and our feedback is used to understand what is important to us as graduate students.

Participants may also enter into a drawing for a Loyola sweatshirt. Please consider completing the survey!

Social Painting Event

Social Painting Event at Painting with a Twist

Sunday, May 1st, 2pm

1134 York Road

We are planning a special social painting event to close out this semester. Our previous painting events have sold out, and we expect this one to do so also!

The event is open to all members of the Loyola graduate community and their guests. While the normal cost for a party at Painting with a Twist is $42 per person, the GSO is subsidizing most of the cost, making the charge only $10 per person.

Please visit the Graduate Friday website for questions and other information about the event.
