The NASSS Conference is a great place for grad students to meet each other and to interact with faculty in their field. Here are some of the programs and events that will help grad students get the most of the conference.
Grad Student Room Share:
Sharing a room can help with your expenses and allow you to meet other students. If you’d like to take part in our room share program, please fill out the survey below. You will be matched with other students to help share the cost of your room at the conference hotel ($159/night). Once pairings have been made you and your roommate(s) will be introduced through email. You all are then responsible for reserving and paying for your room. *The deadline to reserve a room at the conference rate is September 30th, so you may want to reserve a room now and then make arrangements once you are matched.

Take a Student to Lunch:
This program is a valuable way for grad students to connect with faculty. We had 49 faculty members volunteer to participate in this year’s Take a Student to Lunch event. The event will take place from 1:00-2:15PM on Thursday, November 4th. Please sign up using the survey below. You can list up to 5 faculty with whom you would like to have lunch.
Sign up ends Friday, October 21st. We will send out matches over that weekend.
Please contact grad rep Sam Twito (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions about either program
