Friday Graduate Students Commons
The "Friday Grad Commons" is a collaboration of multiple units across campus to provide graduate students with a quiet space in which to read/write and to also consult with staff and faculty on a wide range of topics related to the graduate student experience.

Registration is required to use the space and to seek consultation.
