Hello GSBS!

GSC would like to extend the warmest of welcomes to the new students joining us! It's definitely a weird time to be starting a new stage of your career, but we're excited to have new faces to see on zoom calls. We hope that we'll be able to have a proper in-person welcome later in 2021! As part of our welcome, the GSC social media will be featuring profiles of new students, so make sure that you follow us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. As a reminder, all students (new or otherwise) can contact their GSC program representatives with issues, comments, concerns, or anything else. You can find your program representative here.

We have been hard at work planning for relays 2021! It was disappointing for everyone that 2020 relays had to be cancelled. We are determined to have a relays this year even if it means it will be virtual. Since it's still uncertain whether we will be able to have a relays in-person this summer, GSC is beginning to plan virtual relays. We hope to include some traditional relays events like the mile race (via Strava or another tracking app) as well as some new ones. If you have a COVID-friendly virtual event you would like us to organize for a virtual relays, send your suggestions to Jacob (! Additionally, we will be sending out the form for submitting your academic achievements to receive points for your program soon. Keep an eye out on your emails and our social media for that announcement.

Have a great week!
