13. GSA Logo.jpgRCS is also very proud to have an exceedingly active group of graduate students. This year they have helped put on many events. Below is a summary of those events! 

Graduate Student Pitch-A-Palooza

14. GSA Tropos Pitch-A-Palooza (1).jpgOn March 31, 2018, graduate students of English, French, and Spanish spent a full day with faculty and classmates to present their current projects and receive feedback from the audience. What made this event unique was its format in which each student would summarize his/her project in no more than 10 minutes. This is one of several activities (applying to PhD programs, job market workshop) organized by the GSA-Tropos throughout last academic year.
