 GSC Speed dating

GSC is having its first speed dating event on Saturday November 5th at 6:00pm at Bec’s Bar on Shattuck!  We will have tickets for 30 guys and 30 girls and the event will be split into two so that each guy gets to talk with 15 girls and vice versa.  There will be $4 specialty drink specials as well as normal bar drinks and beer.  Bec’s is also offering a $20 dinner and wine deal for people who want to eat dinner after the event ends at 8pm, which will be an easy way to sit and talk with some of the people you just met!  This deal includes a salad, entree, and glass of wine and has many delicious options available.

There is also a LGBT speed dating event in the works, so we’ll keep you updated on details for this event as well.

Grad Students,

We know you’ve been hitting the books hard, so Friday night take some time to relax, drink some beer, and celebrate Oktoberfest with other grad students!

We will have tons of beer and all the buffalo wings, chicken tenders, and fries you can eat from the Bear’s Lair!

The party begins on October 21st at 8pm and goes to 11pm in the Pauley Ballroom of the MLK student union, and will continue afterwards downstairs in the Bear’s Lair Pub.

Tickets to enter can be bought here online for $5 before the night of the party until 10/20 by midnight, or on the night of the party at the door for $7.  No need to bring a receipt for the purchase, just bring you Cal ID and Driver’s License/Passport and we’ll have a guest list.

Remember to rsvp on facebook! https://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=216152245111486

Online ticket sales are ended, but you can still buy tickets at the door for $7.

PUB CRAWL on Saturday August 20th

Fret not, although the summer is coming to an end, and although that means an end to hot summer nights, it also means that it is the beginning of a dynamic year full of social events! Our second event of the year will be an 80s-themed PUB CRAWL on Saturday August 20th.   Also don’t forget to bring your CAL ID which will let us know who is part of the group as well as who gets drink discounts at the end of the night at the down-low.

You must rsvp to our event page at http://www.facebook.com/event.php?eid=157018611040065 by 08/12/11 and you must wear an 80s outfit to be able to take advantage of our drinks specials.


Also, committee board members and all who are interested in contributing planning ideas for the year are welcome to join Aaron and I at Jupiters at 5pm. Enjoy a beer with us and let’s discuss what you want from the GSC 🙂 We will let you know what is planned for the rest of the year and we’d love your feedback!


Let the party begin!
