You are entering graduate or law school. You have a great sense of who you are and the direction of your life is headed. You are certain in your plan and have a dream job in arm’s reach. Everything seems to be falling into place with a little faith, love and hard work. You are eager and ready to begin the new school year. You have your class schedule and books in hand. You know the one or two buildings where your classes are and, of course, the places to get coffee and food. However, you step foot on this beauteous campus, and even with all your confidence and purpose you wonder, “Where, outside of the classroom, do I belong?” The Graduate and Law Commons is your home away from home. On the 4th floor in the Student Life Pavilion, referred to as SLP, is a room to call your own. Room 401 is a space created just for graduate and law students. The Commons is the place to relax, hangout or study before and after class. Don’t be afraid to help yourself to complimentary coffee, tea and water, hook up to wireless, turn on the TV or use the microwave and refrigerator. The Commons is a great meeting space for groups and is available for reservation by graduate and law student organizations. The Commons is always hosting programs and activities including: Theology on Tap, Bagel Breakfasts, Wellness and Fitness programs, Holiday Celebrations, San Diego Outdoor Adventure excursions, Athletic Events and many more. ***** I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself. My name is Karen Friedlander and I am a first year graduate student in the Higher Education Leadership program through SOLES (School of Leadership and Education Sciences). I am also serving as the graduate assistant for Graduate Student Life. I work from my desk, located in The Commons and I welcome all of you to join me in making this space our home. Please don’t hesitate to come and introduce yourself and share any ideas, hopes and dreams you have for any events on how to use our space and build a strong graduate and law student community. For any questions about Graduate Student Life, please contact me at Graduate and Law Commons: (619) 260-2227
