Graduate Student Appreciation

Every year, The Graduate College celebrates our community of over 4,000 students enrolled in over 100 master’s and doctoral programs with a week-long event: Graduate Student Appreciation Week (GSAW). The week is filled with a variety of free, virtual and in-person events for graduate students, including workshops, wellness activities, and other special events.

Running with the Graduate Deans

The Graduate College would like to invite you to join us in a series of local running events organized by various non-university groups and organizations in town. Everyone who joins us will receive a technical running shirt. For every graduate student, faculty or staff member who runs/walks the race wearing our technical shirt, we will put funds in the amount of the race fee into our scholarship account for the coming year.
