Graduate Student Appreciation Week in the Library

The Library and the Office of Student Engagement are celebrating Graduate Student Appreciation Week, from April 17th through April 21st! Graduate students can use their StagCard to swipe into the Graduate Student Study Room (on the lower level of the Library) and have a cup of complimentary coffee, tea or hot cocoa while studying.

On Wednesday, April 19th from 2-4pm, there will be a massage therapist available to give quick complimentary de-stress massages in room 114 (next to the Graduate Student Study Room). Bring your StagCard. First-come first-served. Sponsored by the Office of Student Engagement.

On Thursday, April 20th, stop by the annual Research and Creative Accomplishments Symposium to support our graduate students while they present (and undergraduate students). The Symposium starts runs from 11am-7pm in the Barone Campus Center, with graduate students concluding the day, delivering their research presentations between 5 and 7 p.m. on Level 2 of the BCC.

Graduate Student Appreciation Week was started in 1993 by the National Association of Graduate and Professional Students as a way to support and appreciate graduate and professional students. Fairfield University is celebrating Graduate Student Appreciation Week later than the officially observed week.
