Frost Week 2017

Welcome to the University of Ottawa,

The GSAÉD is your association and to help us get to know you better, we organised a few activities for next week. GSAÉD’s Frost Week is open to all graduate students at the University of Ottawa, and is not restricted to incoming students. The schedule of activities, held in the Grad House and at Café Nostalgica (601 Cumberland), is as follows:

Monday, January 16, 17:00 to 19:00: Networking event, Café Nostalgica
Kick off the week with a networking event. Network with your colleagues or meet new people in other departments. This is also a great opportunity to meet the executive members of the GSAÉD. Ask some questions and find out how to get involved!

Tuesday, January 17, 19:00 to 21:00: Graduate Student Board Game Night, Grad Lounge, 601, Cumberland St, 2nd Floor
Have you heard of a Board Game Café? Come to your Grad student Café and enjoy food, drink, board games and good company. We have a large variety of the best and newest games as well as all the classics.

Wednesday, January 18, 18:00 to 20:00: Trivia Night, Café Nostalgica2017-FrostWeek
The Café and the Grad House will quickly become your second home. People come to study on the second floor, meet for events on the third floor and hang out in the Café. One of the most popular events is the Monthly Trivia Night. Come to the Café for the first Trivia Night of 2017! Make some friends, join a team (or form one with people in your program) and test your trivia knowledge.
