IU Football Game for Fall 2014!

Hello Fellow Graduate Students,

It is about that time of the year to start thinking about tailgating and going to an IU Football Game! We are getting prepared to see IU (hopefully) beat Penn State at a home game on November 8th.  People who want to get student tickets (price $10)  you can purchase your tickets here:

*Parking purchased in advance is $10, the game day parking price is $20.

Hours of Operation:
Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Hours are extended during select athletic events.

Mailing Address:
Indiana University Athletics Ticket Office
Assembly Hall
1001 East 17th Street
Bloomington, IN 47408-1590

Telephone Numbers:
866-IUSPORTS (866-487-7678)

Student seating is general admission, so we don't have to worry about assigned seats. We can tailgate, have fun and then whomever has purchased tickets can all go into the game. If you want to just attend the tailgate you can also do that.

We will have an area set up for tail gate so you must contact one of us on that day and we will tell you where the tailgate is set up. Also we are taking donations to purchase hot dogs and snacks, if you are coming please sign up with one of us and donate some money towards food. If you would like to drink BYOB and we will have coolers to keep your drinks cold.

You can drop off funds to:

"On the successful postdoctoral fellowship: how to get in and out"

Following our Q&A with the post-docs in the fall, we have asked faculty Yves Brun and Jake McKinlay to give us their perspective on the topic.  This will be March 14th during Micro Research Discussion time (SI001 12:20-1:20pm).  See you there!

Hu Hot Mongolian Grill and Laser tag!

MGSA is inviting all Micro students to meet for dinner and laser tag on Saturday, March 15th.  Meet for dinner at 5:30 PM at Hu Hot Mongolian grill.  After that we will carpool to Laser Lite on the east side of town.  The post-laser tag venue will be decided upon by the group that comes.  Bring your friends and we will see you there!

We created this website to advertise  events that the MGSA organizes and also to share other fun or useful resources for surviving grad school here at IU Bloomington.  If you have ideas or comments email the MGSA student council at
