Form Connections with Your Peers
The Chemical Engineering and Materials Science and Engineering Graduate Student Organization (GSO) coordinates department events, puts people in touch with each other and acts as a connection to department social life. During the academic year, the GSO hosts department social hours at various locations in downtown Davis, which is walking or biking distance from campus. These social hours sometimes involve mixers with other scientific departments, such as Biomedical Engineering or Chemistry. The GSO also organizes fun, relaxing events such as bowling nights at the MU or board game nights.
Student officers provide valuable feedback to new graduate students with the GSO’s annual preliminary exam Q&A lunch and follow-up practice sessions. They also serve as resources for advice about anything from good places to eat in Davis to what to expect from the qualifying exam.
