Dear fellow graduate students: As an ED Campus Life (EDCL), I always realize the importance of balancing graduate life with both academic and social goals. Strong social involvement in life is always helpful to get rid of academic stress and social problems. This thought provokes me to plan and organize several events for all graduate students to connect to each other, especially events that are blend with global and NL culture. During pandemic stress, I am planning to organize mental wellness workshop to better cope with the stress of graduate student life. To accumulate all cultures and traditions in one platform, I will arrange multicultural food festival, diversity program and so on. For technical skill development, entrepreneurship program, IELTS program will be my priority. In addition, monthly events (e.g., Trivia or requested event) will be conducted virtually during this pandemic. Therefore, my suggestion would be to please keep an eye on the GSU website and follow our electronic media (Instagram, Facebook and Twitter) for recent updates.
Finally, please do not hesitate to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for sharing any information or suggestions.
