Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week: Big Solar Breakfast

Monday, April 8, 9:00 am to 11:00 am EDT

Each year, during National Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week, the Rackham Graduate School joins universities from across the country to host events designed to support and recognize graduate students. The week is aimed at highlighting the great contributions and high value that graduate and professional students bring to our community. This year’s events include networking, delicious food, games, swag, and the relaxing, joyful presence of therapy dogs. Join us for a week of connection and celebration!

This year, National Graduate and Professional Student Appreciation Week kicks off with a celestial delight: the solar eclipse!

Stop by Rackham in the morning to enjoy a delicious breakfast with your fellow scholars and pick up a pair of solar glasses. Designed for safe solar eclipse viewing, use your solar glasses to enjoy the solar eclipse in the afternoon:

  • Partial Eclipse Start Time: 1:57 p.m.
  • Maximum Coverage Time: 3:13 p.m.
  • Percent Coverage: 99 percent

We are so appreciative of the ways your brilliant minds, dedication, and hard work shape our campus community—it’s nothing short of a cosmic wonder.
