It’s that time of year again — a new academic session, new classmates, and our anticipated fall tradition Schulympics!

Schulympics is organized and operated by the Graduate Business Council (GBC), Schulich’s graduate student government, with the purpose of fostering meaningful connections among new and returning students while nurturing Schulich spirit. Year after year, this event facilitates some of our students’ most cherished memories from their Schulich career.
