Hey Everyone!

GSC and the Relays Committee have been working hard to make this year’s event a great success! As a reminder, Relays is next Friday, July 19, 11:30-4. You can purchase your ticket to the event as well as your raffle tickets here. Raffle tickets will also be available on Relays day. We have some great raffle prizes this year, including gift cards to a bunch of local restaurants, passes to the ICA, and an Acer Chromebook. Check out the full list of prizes here – and be sure to check back before Relays as the list is expected to grow before then!

As you know, the ultimate goal of Relays is to raise money for the Student Enrichment Fund. This year our goal is to raise $4,000. We’re off to a great start, but still have a long way to go. Check out the crowdfunding site here and be sure to share with friends and family!

This year for Relays we introduced 3 new academic events to reward teams for their achievements throughout the year. This has been a huge success, and we’ve had over 150 submissions so far! Currently, the rankings are:


  1. MD/PhD
  2. Immunogenetics
  3. CMDB


  1. Immunogenetics

Be sure to check out the full list of submissions or submit any last entries. Submissions close in 1 week, on Monday, July 15!

Watch out for an email later this week with more Relays details including the events (there’s some changes), schedule, and more! If you have any questions email the GSC.

See you next Friday!!
