Holiday Season!


We hope all of our readers had a great–small–break from work and school last week! From panel events to our Lands End Hike, a lot has happened while you were gone. Here’s what you need to know:

On November 17th, our friends at GGU Psychology Association hosted their Meet Your Professors event featuring three guest professors! Students pursuing their psychology degrees had great time sharing the evening with their professors.

The Tuesday of the following week, GGU Sports Club hosted their second Table Tennis Tournament. It was a festive event that resulted in the following winners:

Women Singles: Syeda Ariba Hasan

Men Singles: Lav Bhutada

And lastly, on Sunday the 27th, we had a small group of students joining us for our Lands End Hike. While the attendance was smaller than expected, we had great time enjoying the beautiful weather, admiring the views and following the damp trails. We are looking forward to our next hike!
