Your GSC VP of Social and Student Life,
Brought to you by the Brown Graduate Student Council
At our upcoming November 6 meeting, the GSC will be electing a new slate of executive officers to serve during the 2014 term. None of the current executive board members are running for re-election, so this is your chance to get involved!
You don’t have to be a GSC representative to run!
Nominations are open. You can nominate yourself or someone else by emailing me, or by just showing up to the meeting.
The posts and their responsibilities can be viewed on our website:http://students.brown.edu/GSC/static/officers
Please share our Facebook announcement:https://www.facebook.com/browngsc/posts/343845945759366
If you have any questions about the positions, please email@example.com
Our preliminary agenda for Wednesday night’s GSC meeting is online. Remember, meetings are open to all graduate students but only departmental representatives can vote. At the beginning of each meeting, we vote on the agenda, so you can have your voice heard if there’s an important item you want to present on.
The meeting is Wednesday night at 7pm in the graduate student lounge. [Map]
We have two important elections on Wednesday night. Matt Lyddon stepped down recently. The presidency being left vacant, Keila Davis assumed the office in accordance with the GSC constitution. The vice-presidency is now open, as a result. Secondly, the position of Master’s Advocate is now open. Our interim appointment, Adolfo Bailon, did wonderful work over the summer but is now stepping down. View the job descriptions below:
If you have any questions about these posts or anything else about procedures or the GSC, please be in contact!
Don’t forget your Brown ID and 21+ government issued picture ID. Event opened only to Brown graduate students
Dust off your dancing shoes, it is that time of the year again!
How has your summer been? Ours has been super productive! We have a good deal coming your way, but first, let’s celebrate the fact that it is still summer by dancing it off (almost) until the end of the night.
In honor of summer, and to welcome our new, incoming, cohort of graduate students, we have planned a “Welcome Back” party next week. It’s time to celebrate past summers before we step foot in the future!
So, join us for a “Throwback Summer Friday”. Put on your best decade summer outfit, whether it’s that flowery hippie dress from the Summer of Love, or that pair of ripped denim jeans from your summer of Nirvana worship, or even last year’s Hawaiian vacation!
In short, we want to see you in your best touristy/summery outfit, and come dance or make new friends at the party! Summer might be dying, but it isn’t over until we say it’s over!
As usual you’ll get free beer tickets at the door, and some finger food.
Join us at Alumnae Hall, THIS Friday August 30, 2013 at 9pm!
WHO: You and your guest
WHAT: Throwback summer social!
WHERE: Alumnae Hall on Pembroke campus, Brown University [Google Maps]
WHEN: Friday August 30, 2013 from 9pm until 1am
DO NOT FORGET YOUR BROWN ID AND 21+ GOVERNMENT ISSUED ID

Hi Collective Brain!
It’s almost the start of the semester (sorry to be raining on your (somewhat grey) Sunday!)!
We know it’s a bit short notice, but we are looking for people willing to lend a hand during Orientation this week and/or next week.
Remember when it was you and you were all like “woot”?
Well, orientation starts this week, and with it, its cohort of disoriented people. To help them get their bearings, we–the GSC exec–will be at hand for International and General Orientations (watch out for the traditional Welcome Back Party announcement!
International Orientation is on Friday August 23, 2013 and General Orientation is on August 30, 2013.
If you happen to have some free time on these days, we would love help! In particularm we are looking for volunteers who would be willing to share their favorite spots on campus and experiences as grad students.
We are looking for volunteer tour guides on campus for International Orientation on Friday August 23, 2013. You would get a group of incoming international grads from the International House (next door to the OMAC and the gym), to the Grad Lounge, touring campus and answering questions along the way. If you don’t know what to say, it’s okay, we have a quick-fact sheet with anecdotes and histories about campus and Providence. Tours start at 2pm and finish at 3pm. There will be ice cream and cake at the Lounge after, and you will be of course invited to it!
We are also looking for discussion leaders for General Orientation on August 30, 2013. There is a small group discussion with incoming students planned, and we are looking for people who would be willing to be discussion leaders: you would introduce yourself and have the students introduce themselves, and talk a bit about what’s it like to be a grad student at Brown. Don’t worry, we will give a quick-fact sheet about common questions that might be asked and how to answer them. It is likely that they will also ask about your social experiences at Brown (where to eat, where to dance, what’s fun to do here?), etc. Discussions start at 1pm and finish at 2pm, but as it is their last session of the day, if some of the incoming hang out, feel free to stay a bit too!
If you are interested in this, please get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
GSC VP Student Life and Socials
Events start Wed., August 7.
Come to the open house to get your BEARINGS around Brown and Providence!
To all incoming international graduate students,
Welcome to Brown!
To help you get your bearings, the Graduate Student Council, Graduate School and Office of Campus Life and Student Services will be hosting Open Houses each week leading up to International Students Orientation (August 23rd).
They will take place on:
All between 12 and 1:30pm. Each Open House will be held in Room 411 in the J. Walter Wilson Building. If you’re yet to visit campus, this is on the corner of Brown Street and Waterman Street; it’s the same building where you’ll need to visit OISSS and check in with your paperwork.
These are not only a great way to start meeting people on campus, but a perfect opportunity to begin finding out more about what you’ll need to know in settling in and setting up in Providence!
Guests, including deans from the Grad School, staff from Campus Life andOISSS, members of the GSC, current graduate students, and the Summer Project Coordinator in International Graduate Student Experience will be available to take any questions you might have and welcome you to campus. So arrive early and enjoy snacks and coffee or tea with us as we regale you with stories of Brown!
