VIMS YARD SALE

This evet is hosted by the VIMS GSA, but anyone from the greater Gloucester area is welcome to attend- either as a vendor or as a buyer. There is always an ecelctic mix of items perfect for people moving in or out. 

FIELD DAY

A relatively recent addition to the VIMS agenda, this event is designed to foster community through team-based games. Teams must have players from different departments, and different years, and there are often spectacular hand-made prizes for the winners. 

FALL PARTY

Pig Roast. Beer Truck. Bounce House. Live Music. Need we say more? 

THANKSGIVING PIE SALE

One of the GSA's largest fundraisers, we make apple, pumpkin, and pecan pies from scratch. Pre-order by contacting Gail Schwieterman

VIMS SILENT AUCTION

The GSA Silent Auction Fundraiser takes place at the VIMS Holiday Party.  Many items have been donated by our graduate students and local businesses and range from gardening to gym memberships.  

All proceeds support the VIMS Graduate Student Association. 

If you would like to donate to the Silent Auction, please contact gsaexec@vims.edu

CHILLI COOK-OFF

Students, Staff, and Faculty alike go head-to-head to show off their chilli and cornbread recipes. Vegetarian options are also available. 

SPRING PARTY

Fish Fry, plus all the goods from Fall Party. Although we've been jinxed with rain more times than we'd care to admit, it always proves to be a great time. 

TGIs

These casual events happen throughout the year, and are an opportunity for students to socialize with members from other departments and disciplines. They are frequently associated with other VIMS events, such as campus-wide seminars or Journal Club in association with the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. 

OFF CAMPUS EVENTS

VIMS GSA sponsors the purchase of food, non-alcoholic beverages, and decorations for several parties throughout ther year. Historically, members of the GSA have volunteered to host a Welcome Party, a Halloween Pary, a Holiday Formal, a St. Patricks Day Party, and a Cinco de Mayo party.
