Free events, food and prizes are lined up for Pitt’s celebration of Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week. Schools across the U.S. recognize these students’ contributions to campus communities each year during the first week of April.

Starting April 3, graduate students can have dessert with Vice Provost of Graduate Studies Amanda Godley, take a minute for self-care, pick up free swag and snacks, snap a new professional headshot and more. The University will also recognize students who have distinguished themselves through research, service and leadership at Graduate Honors Convocation on April 4.

Check out the full list of events from the Office of the Provost.

Pitt’s Graduate and Professional Student Government is hosting events, including an appreciation cookout on April 4. The organization’s annual spring fling event is April 8 on Pittsburgh’s North Shore; tickets are $15.
