On September 5, 2017, the Graduate and Professional Student Senate (GPSS) held their 4th annual Husky Sunrise on Rainier Vista to welcome new and returning graduate and professional students. This year’s event featured a delicious breakfast, mimosas, and the opportunity to mingle with Deans, faculty, and students from a variety of academic disciplines. Students were also able to learn about many of the resources for graduate and professional students at the campus resource fair.

According to one attendee, “it was a great way to be introduced to campus. I didn’t know anyone and was nervous, but everyone was in the same situation and it was a very easygoing event.” It was exciting to see students, deans, faculty, and administrators come together with the sole purpose of meeting new friends and enhancing a sense of community at UW.

Yeun Elloise Kim, who is in her second year as GPSS President said that the event “brimmed with a feeling of excitement and offered a setting where students supported each other and celebrated each other’s splendid achievements.” GPSS continues to be proud of hosting this annual event and is thankful for the campus departments who provide the generous support for it.
