GradFriday: Upcoming Events

Grad Friday

Grad Friday is your place to check for events going on specifically for graduate students at Loyola.  It began as an idea by the Graduate Student Organization to plan one Friday event a month, but has evolved to include a compilation of interesting programs, events, speakers, and other happenings that would be of interest to graduate students any day of the week.

Upcoming Events

Join the GSO for a couple fall-themed activities.  Okay, neither of these are on a Friday -- but what's not to like about a Saturday?

Fells Point Haunted Pub Walk meet-up
Saturday, October 18th, 7 p.m.

We know this one is short-notice, but we wanted to advertise it in case anyone would be interested in going with us!  Step through the doors of some of Fells Point's most haunted pubs on this fascinating tour of the historic maritime neighborhood.  The tour is about 2 hours, and is $22.  Participants can choose to buy their own drinks along the way if they like.
