Graduate Welcome and Resources Fair Sept 2

Graduate Welcome and Resources Fair on Tuesday, September 2nd

The Graduate Welcome and Resources Fair is on Tuesday, September 2nd (don’t confuse this event with the ones put on by the SGPS). This resource fair is hosted jointly by the School of Graduate Studies (the administrative home of all grad programs), plus Student Affairs (the administrative branch that takes care of non-academic student services), and the SGPS (Society of Graduate and Professional Students, which is our representative body). It’s free and then some—you’ll find complimentary pancakes on offer between 8 and 9 in the morning outside the back of the Physical Education Centre (between the PEC and the Queen’s Centre). It’s for new and returning students alike.
