Before You Go….

New Resource for GDMA Students

There is a new resource page for you, created by  a few of your fellow 4th years (Zia, Arvin and Jonathan):

GDMA Student Collective Facebook page.

This group is a place for GDMA students, both current and graduated, to share resources, ask questions, and get to know each other.

Currently, the group is only being utilized by part of the GDMA student body. They would love to open up the group to everyone in the program and provide an opportunity for all of the students to get to know each-other. This would be a great resource especially for the first year students who are new to the program.

The group is currently set to be a Closed Group in it’s privacy settings, so you will have to request access, which should be granted shortly.
