Grad Welcome Night

All current and new MACP & MSGT Graduate Student's are highly encouraged to attend the Grad Student Welcome Night on Thursday, September 19th from 5-9pm.   All current and new graduate students are welcome as this event is intended to connect all UW Tacoma Graduate Program students, staff, and faculty. There will be some social time with light refreshments and a few informational talks about different facilities and services on campus. Moreover, there will be time to play basketball, ping pong and air hockey at the University Y.

Please come and connect with other University of Washington Graduate School students, faculty and staff. Students are welcome to bring their families. We will have games for all ages and we are exploring the possibility of providing childcare.

Looking forward to seeing you there!
