Grad Student Appreciation Week 2019

CSU's fourth annual Graduate Student Appreciation Week (GSAW) was celebrated April 1-5, 2019.  A wide variety of daily events were held to recognize and celebrate CSU graduate students and their significant contribution to Cleveland State University, the City of Cleveland, and beyond.

Specific GSAW activities also recognized student leaders, Graduate Assistants, and Researchers. New this year, GSAW extended to CSU student researchers in the Lerner Research Institute at the Cleveland Clinic.  Kenya Wilcots, Ph.D. candidate in Bioanalytical and Clinical Chemistry, helped to coordinate the College of Graduate Studies involvement in the resource fair and lunch with students.
