Save the Date for Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week!

I Heart Grad Students

April 2 – 6, 2018

Join the Graduate Student Association and The Graduate School in celebrating Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week 2018! During this week, we honor the contributions of UT Tyler’s 2800+ graduate and professional students. For more information and dates, check out the schedule here


  • Grad School Application Fee Waiver: All current UT Tyler undergraduate students who apply for graduate school during Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week will get their application fee waived. Need help with the application? Stop by ADM 345 for assistance. We’re here to help!
  • Grad Life Photo Contest. Post pictures of you and/or and your fellow grad students living the UT Tyler grad student life with hashtags #graduttyler and #YourProgram. The program with the most hashtags will win a prize.
  • What’s your UT Tyler Story? We hear so many great stories from students about how their time at UT Tyler has changed their lives. Some people may meet their future spouse here, get their first internship, or create lasting friendships with faculty or classmates – the list goes on and on. As part of Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week, we want to encourage you to share your UT Tyler Story with us. We will share them on Facebook, and the one with the most likes will win a prize on April 6th. Share your story here

And on Thursday, April 5th, we’ll host the very first Grad School 180. Grad School 180 is a research competition at The University of Texas at Tyler. It is open all UT Tyler graduate students, and challenges participants to present a compelling spoken presentation on their research and its significance in just 180 seconds, using language that can be understood by people outside the discipline. This competition helps to develop presentation, research, and academic communication skills and supports the development of research students’ capacity to explain their work effectively. Participation also allows students to take pride in their work and show the community the impact UT Tyler’s graduate students are making in the local community and beyond. Competition judges will be alumni and community members.
