Hello colleagues,

I hope the year has gotten off to a great start! I am writing to ask for your help with promoting Gradstravaganza, our annual campus-wide welcome event for new and returning graduate students, scheduled for this Friday, Sept. 9. I've attached the flier and included an announcement below. I would appreciate your assistance with sharing this information with your students.

Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
