This event is open to all graduate students, there will be free food and drink, and the GLC President will be taking questions on the floor. We want to know how you plan to promote the event.

Your Tools:
At your hypothetical disposal are the Graduate Gazette newsletter (released monthly) email list, the website, and the GLC’s social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. You also have the ability to ask each of the five GSCs to promote the event directly to their constituents.
