The UT Libraries has opened the new Scholars Commons, which includes the Graduate Landing Spot - a graduate-only space with beautiful writing/work rooms, a kitchenette, and a place to collaborate. Graduate student ID needed to enter. This semester, the Graduate Student Writing Group was also awarded $413 for new t-shirts and tote bags by the Graduate Student Assembly. Be on the lookout for our events so you can pick one up! We are also continuing our partnership with UT Libraries, Sanger, and University Writing Center to offer more events through the semester, including day-long writing retreats!
Swing-Out Awards - Finalist!
In our first year, we have been growing quickly, and experimenting with ways to get students engaged and prioritizing their academic writing. This week, we heard from Student Activities that the Graduate Student Writing Group is a finalist for the 2014-2015 swing out awards in the categories of Best New Organization and Best Graduate Organization. This is very exciting! We also earned distinguished status for Individual Opportunity in the Pillars of the Forty Acres program. All this amounts to more exposure for our group, perhaps additional funds, an many more opportunities for our members to get to work!
We have been added as a participating organization at the UT Student Organization Fair for Monday, January 26th, 2015! Come check out our table, grab some freebies, and bring along a friend, office mate, or lab mate to learn about the Graduate Student Writing Group!
