Graduate Division Fall Celebration

On Thursday, September 8, 2016, the Graduate Division hosted its Fifth Annual Fall Celebration to mark the beginning of the new academic year and to welcome new and returning students to campus, along with postdoctoral scholars.


This year, over 700 graduate students, postdocs, and faculty members gathered on Koret Quad at Mission Bay for BBQ, ice cream, music, socializing, great raffle prizes, and lovely weather.

Thank you to everyone who came out to have a good time, as well as to the staff volunteers who made the event run so smoothly!
