Schulich Graduate Students: It’s that time of year again — a new academic session, new classmates, and the GBC’s 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 students’ most cherished memories from their Schulich career.

What is Schulympics?

Schulympics is a backwoods getaway, team building retreat, and class wide competition rolled into one. Once at camp, students will be placed in teams for the next day’s range of events.  The second evening will be capped off with an award ceremony followed by a party.
