WesternU Polish Graduate Student Association
The goal of this club is to provide opportunities for graduate students of Polish descent (as well as students interested in Polish culture) to make meaningful friendships and connections with other Polish Graduate students, while promoting and maintaining connections to Polish culture and tradition. As a result, members will not only have proximal ties to their culture through their peers and events, but will also be able to meet potential professional connections or research collaborators.
Though members of this organization are not obligated to come to any of the events, the events will create a culturally relevant and social atmosphere that should appeal to graduate students of Polish descent.
There is no set number of events in a given year, but members should expect approximately one monthly event during the Fall and Winter terms.

Looking for a group to run with?
The Running Club meets twice a week during Winter 2023: Tuesdays and Thursdays at 5pm. We meet by the main entrance to the Western Recreation centre. These runs are meant to be social and we go at a pace that allows for chatting, with some walking every now and then. Runners of all experience levels welcome!
If you would like to become a member, please fill out our intake form here: https://tinyurl.com/sogs-running-club. Membership is not needed to attend runs, you can simply show up! However by becoming a member you’ll get our email updates about upcoming events outside the weekly runs, such as trail runs, races, and so on.
Questions? Comments? You would like to get involved? Don’t hesitate to get in touch with the Running Club organizer, Jarl G. Taxerås Flaten (firstname.lastname@example.org)
