Fall Fest

Fall Fest is a family-friendly celebration of fall and the spooky season. As an Engagement Office, we host an evening event where we invite you, your friends, and your family to visit STAMP, have fun, play games, dress up in costume, and so much more! Prior years have featured costume contests, carnival games, escape rooms, caricature and balloon artists, etc. There's always a lot to do, prizes to win, and of course yummy food to eat. 

GradTerp Study Breaks

Scheduled at the end of each semester, study breaks are designed to encourage grad students to take time off from the hectic demands of finals time. GSL plans a full day of events, including free food, snacks, giveaways, crafts, and more!


Grad Student Appreciation Week

Graduate Student Appreciation Week is a week-long series of events and free offerings held each spring designed to recognize the contributions of graduate students. This week allows us to offer free giveaways, food, and evening events to give a special thanks to the 10,000 plus graduate students at the University of Maryland for all of the hard work that they do!
