Sept 8, 12:30-2pm – Grad Group Welcome Back Luncheon, London Room

Please join us for the traditional welcome (back) lunch of the Graduate Group in Archaeology, Classics, and History of Art. This is a chance to reconnect after the summer vacation and to meet the new students.

The lunch will take place on Tuesday, September 8, 2015, in the London Room, from 12:30-2:00pm.

Please feel free to come late or leave early if your teaching commitments do not allow you to be present for the entire time. The event has been scheduled for Tuesday instead of Wednesday, as usual, this semester in order to avoid a conflict with a lecture sponsored by the Center for Visual Culture on September 9, 2015.

We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible at this first gathering of the Graduate Group this academic year.
