Dancing with the Dean 4.0

While GSSW Dancing with the Dean 4.0 is planned for students, the entire GSSW community is welcome to attend. Some staff and faculty attended including staff from the Office of Admission, and Office of Outreach. Many faculty also came to support the students and have a fun night out! A few alumni of GSSW surprised us with a visit along with all the partners, and family of our faculty, staff, and students.

One fun activity was the photo booth where students, staff, and faculty could have fun. Below are some sample pictures of how creative our students, staff, and faculty can be with their photo booth photos.

Dancing with the Dean is a program that is becoming a tradition here in GSSW. The staff, faculty, and students thank everyone for coming out and having a fun night!



A BIG thank you goes out to the planning committee which included:  Linda Clark – Assistant Dean for Administration, Lynda Ricketson – Director of Development and Alumni Giving, Nick Ota-Wang, Admission Assistant,, Ann Petrila – Director of Field Education & Clinical Associate Professor, Lisa Ingarfield – Director of Career & Student Development.
