That’s not the begining of a joke. That’s the begining of a great evening!
Meet graduate students from other faculties, talk about environmental issues, mingle and enjoy a light evening with GESA. As a part of our mission, we bring graduate students from departments who have collaborative programs with the School of the Environment, which means there’ll be a diversity of attendees from many different disciplines.

$2 drinks, great conversation and warm weather all make for good evening, we look forward to seeing you there!
