GRADUATE STUDENT PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT MONTH

October 3rd – 31st, 2016

As part of the new G.R.A.D. Aggies Program, October has been named Graduate Student Professional Development Month at Texas A&M University. To promote participation in G.R.A.D. Aggies events, students who attend any G.R.A.D. Aggies event during the month of October will be entered in a drawing for up to $50 in gift cards. And don’t forget, all these events will also count towards the new G.R.A.D. Aggies Professional Development Certificate as well (read more here).

Attendance at any G.R.A.D. Aggies event during the month of October will be eligible for a variety of drawings based on the total number of events a student participates in during Professional Development Month. At each event, attendance will be taken and students will receive instructions on how to be entered into the Professional Development Month drawings.  At the end of the month, 12 winners will be selected to receive one of three prizes based on the number of events attended.
Students who attend:

  • 1-2 events will be entered into a drawing for a $10 gift card to Barnes and Nobles (10 winners will be selected).
