The Graduate English Society’s Annual Holiday Party

Holiday Party invite

We’ve passed the mid-point of the semester and the time for developing final papers, grading exams, and planning journeys home for the holidays is fast approaching. However, on the evening of Thursday, December 4th, the GES formally invites you to escape the winter blues and celebrate all of this semester’s hard work and achievements at our annual Holiday Party.

Sponsored by the GES, the Holiday Party is open to all graduate students, faculty members, and staff in the Department of English. In previous years, it has been customary to have refreshments and drinks on campus in the early evening, with the option to continue the party into the evening at a lounge, pub, dance venue, or house party. Spouses, partners, friends, and colleagues from other departments are welcome to join us for the latter half of the evening’s festivities. However, we ask that attendance of the first half of the evening at The Wave be limited to the Department of English. There is no dress code, although many take the opportunity to wear their holiday finest: glitz and glam and questionable holiday-themed sweaters are all appropriate! If you have children, we do not have childcare available but you are more than welcome to bring them to the event.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact your friendly neighbourhood GES Co-Chairs or our Social Coordinator.


About uwoges

The Graduate English Society (GES) at Western University is a student organization that, through its various events and services, fosters a sense of social as well as academic community among the English graduate students currently in attendance at Western. We also facilitate communication between graduate students and faculty in an effort to promote intradepartmental camaraderie and to present graduate student concerns to the administration. All students in the graduate program in English at Western are members of the GES. Through the GES, students can voice and address matters common to the graduate student body. We hold meetings approximately once or twice a semester which are open to all members. We also elect members to various GES Service Positions where they represent student interests. In addition, the GES serves both professional and social purposes, sponsoring academic events and parties.
