Sept 4 from 4-6 p.m. at Campanile Esplanade

To kick off the new academic year, we’d like to invite all UC Berkeley graduate students — master’s, professional, and doctoral — both new and continuing to attend our Grad Student welcome event; Grad-stravaganza on Wednesday, September 4 from 4-6 p.m. This will be our 4th annual event with a goal of gathering graduate students of all backgrounds and areas of study to simply have some fun.

Grad-stravaganza is an outdoor gathering at the Campanile Esplanade.

Did you say fun?

Yes! Grad-stravaganza will feature music, free food, giveaways, family friendly activities and opportunities to meet fellow graduate students outside of your program. This is a family-friendly event and children are welcome to attend. 

  • Tons of tasty free food

  • Entertainment from graduate student musicians

  • A DJ and 360 Photo Booth

  • Bubbles, and face painting for our littlest bears

  • Button and tote bag making

We will be following campus protocols regarding COVID safety and may readjust this event as necessary depending on state, local, and campus guidance. 

If you require an accommodation for effective communication (ASL interpreting/CART captioning, alternative media formats, etc.) to fully participate in this event, please contact [email protected] with as much advance notice as possible and at least 7-10 days in advance of the event.
