Thank You

The GSA would like to thank Chancellor Jo Ann Gora for attending the October 23rd general membership meeting. GSA members had an opportunity to introduce themselves to the chancellor and voice opinions and concerns.

Campus Center

The GSA would also like to thank Anne Devaney the Director of the new Campus Center for taking graduate students on a tour of the new building. Graduate students were “wowed” by the impressive new building that is set to open sometime in spring ’04. The GSA looks forward to moving its office into the new building next semester.
