Coffee Hour

The GRO is, perhaps, best known on campus for running the weekly GRO Coffee Hour, which offers free coffee, tea, and pastries, as well as the occasional give-away of GRO merchandise. (We've observed that grad students like free stuff.) You can get your cost-free dose of caffeine every Monday 2:30-3:30 p.m. in the Levering Lounge.

Happy Hour

Another popular event is the GRO Happy Hour, featuring free food and drink specials at local bars.


The celebrates NAGPS' Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week (GPSA Week) each Spring. The week with packed with events, most of which involve free food and prizes.

Other Events

In addition to these regularly scheduled social events, the GRO also periodically plans additional activities for your enjoyment, such as bus trips to destinations like New York and Ocean City, beer and wine tastings, and group outings to many of the area's various amusements (arr, matey!).  Keep an eye on your e-mail or the GRO calendar for the up-to-date information about GRO's social activities.
