Community Building Events

graduate students relax and enjoy food and company on the GLC front lawn

Our Community Building events are opportunities for our graduate and professional students to connect on a deeper, more personal level, encouraging their personal and professional growth. We have, in the past, offered the Welcome Back Barbecue, Beer and Wine Socials, picnics, workshops, and networking events. Due to COVID-19 concerns, the Fall Semester Welcome Back Barbecue was cancelled. We are very disappointed by this necessity, but your safety is our priority.

We welcome your ideas for new and exciting events to be held this year! We also gladly welcome other student-serving organizations to join us in creating events that serve our communities.

Dates and times of all events will be announced on this page, and on our Calendar, our Facebook page, our Twitter account, and through the weekly Graduate School listserv email.

Example Volunteer opportunities: organization of events,  marketing of events, vendor management for an event, set up of event, tear down at end of event, organization of participants and their activities. 

Questions? Please email the Director of Events from your VT email address.
