How many graduate, medical and professional students can you fit into one room? Before Friday, August 26, we weren't sure. Now we know that we can fit almost 200 people into one space thanks to your participation in our first ever Joint Happy Hour!
Connections, SNMA, OUTgrads, ABBGS and GALAS came up with the unprecedented idea to bring their student groups together for one event instead of shepherding the bright-eyed, bushy-tailed new students from information session to information session. Although it hadn't been done before, the event was definitely grand! As students from all programs at WashU and neighboring schools learned about each of our student groups, they also ate and drank merrily while playing games. We mingled with graduate students from the Danforth campus, OT and PT students, medical campus graduate students and students from neighboring institutions in St. Louis while playing Jenga, Bingo and Fish in a Bowl! The participation, atmosphere and energy in the room were all amazing! Connections was happy to participate in such a great event and we can't wait for next year!!
Take a look at our pictures in the photo gallery below and please feel free to leave comments/suggestions/pictures from the Joint Happy Hour in our comment section!
