Graduate Teaching Assistant Award
Each year, a number of graduate students who serve as Graduate Teaching Assistant are recognized for their teaching excellence; one of those is named Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year. The 2007 recipient of the Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award is Amanda Getsinger, Geology.
Graduate College Research Day
In the spring each year, the Graduate College recognizes formally the research undertaken by graduate students. A full day is devoted to talks and poster presentations by students from all of the disciplines. The entire University community has the opportunity to see and hear about the high quality research that graduate students conduct.
