GraMS Luncheon

February 18, 2013 - Today I had the honor of having lunch with GraMS, one of our graduate student organizations.  GraMS had requested that I talk to their members about the upcoming graduate events and discuss ways in which students can volunteer for the events.  We talked about the schedule of events, details for setting up, registration, and frequently asked questions.  We also talked about our social events which include our pizza party, game night, and dinner downtown.
