MGW Retreat 2012

To kick off the 2012-2013 school year, MGW went to Kickapoo State Park, where we enjoyed canoeing (and one group took a paddleboat…do we say they went paddleboating?).                             Then we enjoyed a picnic lunch before heading back to C-U.  

Lunch with Female Faculty 2011

Something we like to do once a year in MGW is have a lunch with the female faculty in our department.  It’s a really great opportunity to learn from their experience and get their advice on our future careers.  Here’s some photos from our 2011 lunch:  

2011 Lunch with Graduate Office

In the fall of 2011, MGW was invited to meet with the new Head of Graduate Programs, Prof. Harley Johnson.  (We get to do things like this because our input is valued by the department.  Just more proof that MGW is awesome.)              

MGW Retreat 2011

For our 2011 retreat (to start off the new school year in style), MGW went bowling at the Illini Union.             We may not be the best bowlers, but that’s okay.  We’re good at math and stuff.             Then we got some delicious frozen yogurt. read more »
