Welcome back to campus graduate students! Whether you are a seasoned graduate student with the end of your degree in sight, or a brand new face to the GVSU graduate student community, we hope you are looking forward to the start of a great fall semester.

There are many graduate events taking place on campus during the fall semester. To start off the semester, President Haas will be making a special appearance to speak at Grad Club on August 29th. Grad Club events take place on Wednesday evenings from 5:00 to 6:00 in the Graduate Student Commons, room 107 Devos, building C. All graduate students are encouraged to attend Grad Club events to mingle with other graduate students and get dinner before heading off to class.

PACES is a set of professional development programs designed to help graduate students gain nondisciplinary skills for success. The 2012-2013 workshop schedule is available online or you can stop by the Office of Graduate Studies at 318 C Devos for a copy. The first event, Graduate Boot Camp, will be held Saturday September 29th, in the Graduate Student Commons, room 107 Devos, building C. New this year, students are able to register online for Saturday workshops. Visit the PACES website at for more information.

Again, the Office of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Student Association welcome you back to campus. We look forward to seeing you in class and at campus events and we wish you the best in your academic endeavors.

Be sure to like Graduate Studies at GVSU on Facebook for updates on what is going on around your graduate campus community. Also, check out the revised Graduate Student Guidebook on the Office of Graduate Studies website.
