Graduate Student Organization:
The Graduate Student Organization strives to create a sense of community and a collaborative environment for all USciences graduate students. We work to increase networking among graduate students through social, professional, and cultural events. Some of the most valuable experiences we have had at events are those that have included our alumni! Donation to this group will be used to support and sustain graduate student efforts.
Career Pathways: Explore the Unconventional - Goal $1,500
This annual event invites all graduate students and alumni to a professional networking event to explore various career options. The event includes an alumni panel discussion of how alumni entered alternative career paths, speed networking, and an open reception.
Scientific Tea Time - Goal $500
Scientific Tea Time is a new event that allows graduate students to gather informally to discuss topics such as career planning, mental health, experiences with networking, etc. The first tea time held this October was a discussion on intellectual property given by a guest speaker. Possible topics for the future include working through imposter syndrome or preparing for a job in industry. The goal is to have additional opportunities to connect students with resources including alumni experiences with relevant topics.
