If you have been checking you’re emails lately, you may have
noticed an email entitled “Gala student dance invitation” written by Turner Conrad , the
Ambassador for The Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences (GSBS). Turner is
one of five student presidential ambassadors. Students
in this leadership position are responsible for representing their individual
school in addition to representing the UT Health Science Center at various
So keep your eyes peeled for Turner Conrad at this year’s HSC
Gala Student Dance. Additionally, for those of you who choose to attend this year’s
events here are a few tips from Turner Conrad:
The student dance will be held Saturday, September 13th, 2014, at the Grand Hyatt San Antonio and will begin at 9 pm.
Foremost, RSVP ASAP. That’s a lot of acronyming, but you
will want to reserve a spot before being put on the waitlist. There are 400
tickets for the entire UTHSCSA student body and their dates. Last year, around
half of those registered showed up, so it is likely you will get through the waitlist
if you register early enough.
Second, if you do RSVP only to later find out you cannot
make it, cancel ASAP so that a waitlisted individual can get in the door.
Third, dress appropriately. Guys can wear a nice suit or tie
or tux and gals can wear a nice evening gown or cocktail dress. Do not be too
revealing…leave some mystery.
Fourth, there will be FREE hors
d'oeuvres, soda, and water. There will also be a cash bar.
and most important, please please please be safe. We at the HSC would like you
to have a fun, not a harmful or fatal evening. If you are going to drink,
have a designated driver. Even a single beverage can significantly impair your
abilities. Also, ensure that your vehicle is in proper condition for
driving and follow traffic laws and posted speed limits.
note from the Graduate Dean: In past years, the Dean’s Office has
provided round-trip taxi vouchers for our students who travel to/from the
Gala. We will continue the tradition and offer taxi vouchers, valued at
up to $35 each way. If you are attending the Gala, contact Janice Smith,smithJ@uthscsa.edu, for a
