We humbly request that you provide all the support the council needs as Luke resumes his role and assists our VP, Ryan Grice in settling into the new post as we assemble our team to serve the graduate student body at TWU.

Free Pancake breakfast
FREE regular and gluten-free Pancakes with all the stuff you've come to love on top! Every Second Wednesday, from 8:00am to 11am (or as supplies last) at our Grad collegium in the Fosmark Centre. Come out and find ways that the GSA can assist your academic experience. We also do [at least] 3 gift card giveaways at each breakfast!
The GSA Council sponsors various events and approves funding for activities within the university. In the 2017-2018 academic year, we funded the Learning Commons & Writing Centre in the amount of $1,500 as well as the first place prize for the 3-minute-thesis competition in the amount of $500.
Free Grad collegium coffee
Through the GSA's sponsorship with the Graduate Collegium Honor Bar, students get 1 complimentary cup of coffee a day. The spirit of this offer is to encourage students to develop friendships with others in the Collegium.
(Refills are at the normal price as posted)
The TWUGSA will actively defend and represent the needs and requests of the graduate student body through consultation and communication with all affected stakeholders to serve the graduate student body and further its interests.
In addition to our monthly pancake breakfast, the GSA hosts the annual christmas banquet for grad students, and faculty as well as their friends and family. Tickets sell out quickly, so plan ahead and reserve your spot.
