Donut Days!

We are excited to bring back the popular Donut Day events at OGPS! In Spring 2022, we are offering opportunities for our grads and postdocs at both the Uptown and Downtown campuses! Feel free to stop by for a cup of coffee and a donut, starting at 9 AM until we run out. We look forward to seeing you there!

Donut Days: Downtown Campus will be Wednesday, March 10 - located in Room 1525 of Richardson

*Note on location: This office is located in the old Dean’s Hall in Hutchinson 1430 Tulane Ave, Room 1524. Currently, there is construction going on that is blocking the front entrance, turn right at the middle hallway (the one by the three elevators), go up those stairs, then turn right and the office is on the left around the corner at the end of that hallway.
