Beat the Winter Blues with Student Experience!


The Student Experience (STEX) team is excited to have our students back on campus and hope that everyone’s semester is off to a great start! We know that with the colder temperatures settling in, it can certainly be tempting to hibernate; but with the great activities that STEX is planning for this semester, you’re not going to want to stay in and miss them!


Our biggest event of the semester is quickly approaching! Experience Weatherhead Casino Night on Saturday, February 16th at the Museum of Natural History for an evening of casino games, dancing, and exploring the museum’s exhibits with your fellow students, area alumni, faculty, and staff! Tickets are on sale now via Campus Groups ($25 for the first 150 tickets sold; $35 for all other tickets)!

There are a number of other events in the planning stages for this semester including a friendly basketball game against the Law School and a Cleveland Indians game! 

Still looking for ways to get involved? The Graduate Student Business Association (GBSA) will be holding elections for the 2019-2020 academic year in February! If you have interest in running for office, contact current President Chris Blanchard or the STEX team for more information.

To stay up to date with STEX events, join the Weatherhead Student Experience page on Campus Groups and follow us on Instagram @stexwsom.
