“We’re very excited to offer this space to grad students! It’s a space where people from different disciplines can come together in discussions, to work on projects, or just escape for a coffee. This is a relaxed atmosphere where graduate students can get together to discuss big ideas. There’s space for individuals to get some work done as well as for groups to discuss and deliberate,” says Brit Paris, GSA President.
