Fall 16 Social a Big Success

We had an amazing time at our Fall Social event. 41 current members turned out, and we welcomed 6 new ones! We’re so happy to facilitate opportunities for our hard-working members to get together and meet their colleagues from across campus.

Coordinating events like this is a joint effort. We’d like to send a special thank you to all those whose hard work made it possible, including the Executive Committee and our Department Representatives. If you’d like to help out with future events (we have several more planned this semester), contact Daniel, our Organizing Chair, at organizing@fsugau.org!

Fall 16 Social

It’s time for our Fall Social and GAU is heading back to GrassLands! We want to start the school year right and welcome all our new colleagues. Come join us for free pizza from Gaines Street Pies and, for the first 50 members, a free drink! Bring a new member and sign them up at the door for an extra free drink – and they’ll get one, too! We’ll also be handing out free snow cones!

In accordance with our bylaws, we are announcing a General Membership Meeting, during which we will take nominations for her replacement. All GAU members are welcome and encouraged to attend.
