Wally Is That You?

Good morning Cowboys,

Ever since Wally got back this week, he has been focused on the numbers and running “with” or “by the numbers.” I’m not really sure what is going on. I do, however, know Halloween is coming up and he may be preparing for that, but, I tell you, he keeps walking by whispering “the numberssssssssssssssss.”

Hope you can figure out what that means because I have no clue.

Good Luck.

- Windy

Meet the Officers

Name: Adrian Alonso Saenz

Position: Communications Director


GPSGA is the best graduate student organization to meet graduate students. So if you feel as though your friends group is lacking or your graduate networks could be expanded, just join GPSGA

Goal: Is to make people laugh, while keeping them informed of course. Grad school is stressful, but there is nothing a quick laugh can’t fix (i.e. make you feel just a little bit better about your life choices)

Next Meeting: October 17, NRC207 at 5:30 p.m.
