GSS Social Events

Hello fellow English Graduate Students!

Please find below details of social events the Graduate Students’ Society is hosting for the current academic term (so these are events for all grad students in the university). They include game nights, an afternoon adventure in Goldstream Provincial Park, and most importantly…QUIZ NIGHTS! Maybe we’ll have an English quiz team and show other departments of what we’re made?! Details below.
