Springtime into Summer
Charismatic Colleagues,
An epic HIGH FIVE to all graduate and professional students that made it out to the GPSC ROCKS LDOC event last week! It was so great to see the community coming together to hang out in the fantastic weather. Our apologies for anyone who didn't leave with a t-shirt... we clearly underestimated how AWESOME you guys were and didn't make enough. Don't worry... NEXT YEAR we will come prepared.

This week get PUMPED for film, music, LOVE and the outdoors! Also, GPSC has opened applications for summer funding... putting on a KILLER EVENT this summer? We want to help you!
Don't STOP 'Til You Get Enough!!!!!
