GSA Elevator Pitch Competition

Graduate Students:

Ever wish you could share your research with the broader campus community and network with faculty and students who have similar research interests? Or maybe you want a chance to develop a better response to the question: What are you studying?  Then you can’t afford to miss the upcoming:

Second Annual GSA "Elevator Pitch" Competition and Research Mixer
MARCH 29th 3:00 p.m.
Gateway Building

Imagine you have found yourself in an elevator with someone important: a potential employer, luminary in your field, or grant administrator and you have very little time to communicate effectively what you are working on. Can you do it in 60 seconds?

Visit the GSA WEB SITE to see our viral videos and RSVP for the event. Prizes include $300, $200, and $100 for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place winners, respectively. We are also partnering with the ESF Office of Communications to produce a web feature on the winner's research.  Details on last year's competition can be found HERE.

A research mixer with faculty, administration and graduate students will follow the contest.  Refreshments will be served.

This event is currently supported by the Office of Instruction and Graduate Studies and the Department of Environmental Studies and is organized by the Professional Development Committee of the Graduate Student Association.
