Office of Graduate Studies and Thesis Office Workshops

Once each semester, the TAMU Office of Graduate and Professional Studies (OGAPS) and the Thesis Office hosts workshops for current students. As students near completion of their thesis/dissertation, pre-submittal conferences are held during the afternoon. Students can speak directly with OGS and Thesis Office representatives.

This is a great way to meet graduate students from other departments or programs, relax, eat, and talk. These social events generally coincide with evening GGSA meetings.
