Graduate Student Appreciation Week

March 22nd - 28th, 2015

Each year the National Association of Graduate and Professional Students encourages colleges and universities to honor their graduate students with a Graduate Student Appreciation Week. Many institutions across the nation set aside one week in late March or early April to celebrate student accomplishments and recognize the contributions of graduate students to the campus. Check out some of the many Graduate Student Contributions.

This year, the School of Graduate Studies has set March 22 - 28 as the eighth annual Graduate Student Appreciation Week at St. Cloud State University. A downloadable poster and schedule of events will be posted in mid-March
