Yesterday marked the first anniversary of GGU Social’s introductory post, and to celebrate GGU Social’s first birthday, we hosted a party down in the Student Lounge where a total of 90+ guests stopped by to celebrate this glorious moment with us.
We started this project to bring a colorful addition to Golden Gate University’s student life in hopes of entertaining you–our students–on a weekly basis. Using our communication channels, we have been actively reaching out to all of you, deliver news and updates to them in an entertaining manner, and we will keep on doing so for the coming years. We have a bunch of new ideas that we cannot wait to share with you, and we will slowly start revealing those as we go along. We would like to thank our colleagues in the Student Life department for supporting us in this journey, and you, all of our readers, for reading our blog and participating in our events!
Before we wrap up our lengthy thank you message, we would like to take this moment to announce the raffle winners from yesterday’s First Anniversary Party.
Ramin Rafat, Parminder(last name unknown), and Manu Mathur, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with your t-shirt sizes to claim your t-shirts!
News & Updates
Since the first day we first launched our blog last year, we promised to live by our motto “by students, for students,” and next week, we will announce our brand new activity that will provide our students with a great chance to show off their creativity and skills. To learn more about this announcement, make sure to check back in next Wednesday.
Our friends at SGA opened up their annual survey to gather feedback from the students regarding the services they provide. The team will give away an Apple watch and two Fitbits this year; if you contribute in the survey today, you will get a chance to win one of the three prizes!

Golden Gate University has a colorful and diverse community that has a relatively big portion of international students. With the population of international students being high, culture shock is something we hear quite often here on campus. It’s important to understand that Culture shock is a natural emotional process, and Student Life department has put together a workshop to help you overcome its challenges. If you’re an international student, mark the date on your calendars, and make sure to stop by this workshop!
Reposting continues: If you are new to the community, we highly suggest you to watch the Office of Student Affairs Mini-Documentary that was published on YouTube last term.
