The department sponsors several pot luck or informal dinners for faculty and graduate students each year. If you would like to attend one of these special events or an evening class, please make arrangements with the Graduate Program Director. You are, of course, always welcome to come and talk with the GPD, other faculty and/or our graduate students.
