[NOTE] Per our stated policies, tickets are non-refundable and non-transferrable. Because we usually have a long waitlist for trips, we cannot accommodate ticket transfers to your friends. If you are no longer able to attend an event, please let us know in advance and we will notify the waitlist of the additional space(s). Please note, because this is a graduate student event, if your guest is not a graduate student, they cannot attend the event without a graduate student host. You can change the name of your guest (please see below). Please be mindful that Graduate Student Life subsidizes approximately 50% of the trip and works hard to provide access to our services and programs to as many graduate students as possible. We appreciate your understanding. Please email with any changes.
