Grad SeminarWeekly seminar that takes place Friday afternoons in the grad lounge. Students take turns presenting a topic of their choice to a mixed audience in an informal setting. All are invited to participate.Social Events2 main social events for graduate students: Orientation party at Mikes Place End of term party Monthly lounge nights where students can relax, eat pizza, play board/video games, and ultimately just take time away from equations.Academic WorkshopsThroughout the year the society runs several TA training as well as professional development workshops. Weve also hosted panel discussions in the past on effective research skills and how to prepare for advanced comprehensive exams. Suggestions for workshops/panel discussions are always welcome.GSA CouncilThe Graduate Student Association council meets once a month to discuss the status of the association and to address any pertinent financial, academic or political issues. A representative of the grad society usually attends these meetings to keep us up to date with the GSA and to voice any concerns/ideas from the math and stats grad student body.
