The 5th Annual Graduate Academic Conference

The Graduate Student Assembly has started planning for its annual academic conference. As a result of the overwhelming success of last year’s academic conference, this year’s planning committee is thinking “BIG” for the upcoming spring event. Unlike previous years, the GSA intends on inviting the graduate programs at other UMass Campuses to participate in seminars and present their research. In addition to a daylong schedule of activities and seminars, the committee is also planning a gala type dinner reception. The tentative date for the academic conference is March 26, 2004.

Campus Center Tour

Members and guests of the GSA will be receiving a tour of the new Campus Center on Thursday, October 23 at 3:30pm. If you wish to tour the new building, please RSVP at [email protected]. Space is limited and guests will be allowed to join the GSA on a first come, first serve basis.

The Robert W. Spayne Research Grand for Masters students and the Craig R. Bollinger Memorial Research Grand for Doctoral students provide recipients with funding used to complete their thesis or dissertation. This is a competitive process as we receive more applications than available awards.
