MetoGrads

The purpose of this graduate student organization is to provide a foundation for bringing students together to perform group activities that allow for the building of character, experience, and excellence in the field of atmospheric and oceanic science.

In order to become a member of MetoGrads, one must be a full or part time registered student in the Department of Atmospheric and Oceanic Science (AOSC). MetoGrads openly admits AOSC graduate students to its membership and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, creed, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, personal appearance, age, national origin, political affiliation, physical or mental ability, or on the basis of rights secured by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. 

We hold monthly update meetings the first Wednesday of each month at 5-6pm. All officers are required to join; all other AOSC graduate students are welcome to join although attendance is not mandatory.

Community discussion, news and event announcements are hosted on our Slack workspace and Facebook group. Ask one of our officers for an invite!

Incoming, Current, and Alumni Graduate students are encouraged to stay connected through our Facebook group and Slack message board. Join the groups to hear more about upcoming social events, plan study sessions, and enjoy relatable graduate student memes.
