Counting the Days


News & Updates


Last week was a busy week at Golden Gate University’s San Francisco campus. On July 21st, we had Office of Career Planning’s influential Internship Success Panel where Golden Gate University alumni with different areas of expertise talked about their experiences and challenges they faced after graduating from the university.


The students who attended to the event were able to get to know each other as well as the panelists who gave their speeches during the event over refreshments.

You can watch the recorded broadcast of the panel by simply clicking here.


The following day, we had the very first table tennis tournament to be held at Golden Gate University, organized and hosted by GGU Sports Club.



The tournament was conducted in the following three categories: Men’s Singles, Women’s Singles and Mixed Doubles. GGU Sports Club was happy with the amount of participation and they reported that they will be planning another sports tournament very soon! You can find the list of winners with their respective categories below. Congratulations, guys!

Nina Charoenrungsakol (Thailand) – Women’s Singles Winner
Lav Maheshwari (India) – Men’s Singles Winner
Sompatson Sri (Thailand) –Mixed Doubles Female Winner

With the help of our Student Disability Ambassador, Kevin Smith, some of our Ageno Business School students got the chance of participating in Turner Construction’s Transbay Project Tour of the new TransBay Terminal on July 26th.


Before we move on to the events that we suggest you to keep an eye on, we would like to tell you something that you might not know about the place you visit the most during the last couple of weeks of the term. You know it, it’s the library!

Golden Gate University’s Business Library have recently updated their displays with a Japanese popular entertainment collection that consists of anime, manga, video & graphic novels. Go grab one today! And yes, they are for free.

Check out the detailed breakdown of Business Library’s brand new displays here.
