Social Events

Monthly Happy Hours

SBSA's Social Chair runs monthly happy hours, occasionally jointly hosted with other departments or organizations. Biosciences graduate students get together to socialize over drinks, snacks, and occasionally pizza.

Quarterly BBQs

Every quarter, SBSA hosts a BBQ funded by the Graduate Student Council (GSC). All Stanford graduate students are welcome to join SBSA for burgers, drinks, and good company. The BBQs are run by SBSA's Social Chair.

SBSA 1st Year Camping Trip (POWR)

Each year the Stanford Medicine Alumni Association (SMAA) helps sponsor SBSA's 1st Year Camping Trip, also known as the Ph.D. Orientation Weekend Retreat [POWR]). This trip is a great chance for 1st year students to meet others from outside their Home Program and begin friendships that last throughout their time at Stanford. The trip is organized by SBSA's Camping Trip Coordinator.

... And More!

Many social events are run through the SBSA Program Proposal system. Any student can request funding to run an event for the Biosciences community.
