Cooper Young Festival, anyone?

The annual Cooper Young Festival will take place on Saturday, September 18, from 8 am to 7 pm (more).

Maybe we could get a few grad students together to go? If you can spare some hours between insane amount reading for class one, insane amount of reading for class two, and insane amount of reading for class three, that is…


The first week of classes is over and everyone has survived… at least that’s what I heard. Now that we have – hopefully – all managed to get rid of the typical pre-semester panic, I believe that it is time for some CGSA-activities.

– Huey’s Trip. All those among us who take the Persuasion class know… 😉
– Trolley Tour. 6 pm to 9 pm on the last Friday of every month, click here for more information.
– Corn Maze for Halloween.
– Football. The first home game is scheduled for September 18, 6 pm. Visit to learn more.

If you have any ideas, please comment. We are looking forward to your suggestions!

Happy new semester, everyone!
