GSS Annual Holiday Research "Gift" Exchange

December 05, 2013

Winter has arrived and the GSS is ready!

We would like to invite you to the Annual Holiday Research "Gift" Exchange event from 3:30-5 pm on December 11, 2013 at GSS Lounge (Maggie Benston Centre 2212).

The Holiday Research "Gift" Exchange is a brand new annual event where you will have the opportunity to talk to fellow graduate students about research through a fun game, partake in the holiday season of giving and receiving, and enjoy savoury delights and hot chocolate.

So, just prepare a "gift" that represents your research, wrap it awesomely to make it appealing, and register for the event. Don't be intimidated by the idea of preparing a "gift"; your "gift" can be as small as a tomato!

Space is limited, and seats will go fast for this awesome event.

Here's what you need to do to participate in the "Gift" exchange:

  1. Register at Eventbrite by December 11
  2. Make or get a creative and fun item that represents your graduate research, wrap it awesomely to make it maximally appealing (don’t spend any or lot of money on your item, and be willing to part with your “gift” at the end of the event.)
  3. Arrive at the GSS Lounge by 3:30 pm sharp and be prepared to explain how your item and the "gift" you receive relates to your research project.
  4. Leave everything else to us!

Drinks and food will be provided. If you really want to get into the spirit of holiday fun, feel free to wear an ugly holiday sweater.

Also, you're all welcome to come to the GSS Winter Wonderland Open House. The Open House is from 10 am to 5 pm — Come by for hot chocolate, and holiday festiveness!
