Graduate Student Life

While the primary efforts of graduate students focus on academic activities, the Department, University, and Five College community provide enormous opportunities for social and cultural enrichment.  The University’s extensive programs are available to all students at reduced cost.  The Department’s social events vary from receptions following guest lectures to our potluck dinners held at the beginning and end 

of the academic year.  The Alumni Lounge in Bartlett Hall serves as a lunch and meeting room for both graduate students and faculty.  The Graduate Student Senate supports a wide variety of programs and activities for graduate students.  More information can be found in the Graduate School Bulletin.
