SUGSE stands in solidarity with NAB (Native Americans at Brown) in their fight to compel the university to change Fall Weekend to Indigenous Peoples’ Day.
It’s about the least you could do, Brown. Get with it!
This week we will be bringing back the amazing SUGS booth!
Except this time it will be outfitted for passersby to play a short game of GRAD LIFE. SUGS has retooled this classic game to highlight issues that affect the lives and careers of graduate students at Brown. Will you get top marks in your coursework? Get into an amazing summer research program, but need to come up with the funds to support yourself? Maybe things have been going great, but you decide to start a family and realize there isn’t easily accessible childcare and that maternity leave isn’t nearly as robust as you’d hoped…
Come play a short round and see how your GRAD LIFE turns out and also get some tips on how you can advocate for a different outcome if things don’t go as well as you’d planned!
Come have a drink with SUGS on Friday March 6 at 5pm in the GCB! Bring your cohort-mates, or meet new friends, and celebrate our hard-won dental care! You can talk about ongoing issues, find out more about the work SUGS does, or just relax with fellow grads. The first 5 pitchers are on us! Cheers!

SUGS stands in solidarity with all adjuncts, those walking out and those who can’t for fear of retaliation. Check out this great interview to learn more about the movement.
