Ski Trip

Posted on : 28-02-2012 | By : BentleyGSA | In : Day Trips


Host: Graduate Student Association


Date: Saturday, March 17  - Sunday, March 18, 2012


Time: Depart Sat. 4:00 AM , Return Sun. 7:00PM


Location: Loon Mountain Resort, New Hampshire


After much deliberation, and thanks to everyone’s help, the GSA has set a date and location for this year’s Ski Trip!

Whether this will be your first time skiing, or 100th trip, Loon Mountain will have plenty to offer. It has smaller friendly slopes to learn on as well as challenging double-black diamond runs for those looking to push their limits.

Loon stats: http://www.loonmtn.com/info/winter/stats.aspx

We’ll leave Bentley bright and early at 4:00AM so that we can be geared-up and ready to hit the slopes when the lifts open at 9:00AM. A bus will take us so we can catch up on much-needed sleep on the way. We’ll ski all day on Saturday, and those who are interested will take ski lessons, and then retire to hotel rooms at the base of the mountain. At the hotel we can enjoy the amenities of the Mountain Club Resort & Spa and take in the night life. The next morning, Sunday, we’ll hit the slopes again for a short day, retiring around 3:00PM so the bus has us back at Bentley by 7:00PM.

The cost of the trip will be approx. $175 per person, dependent upon the need for ski rentals and lessons. Attendees are responsible for their own food and incidentals.

To receive additional information and reserve your (and guests) spots email Nick Phelps with “Ski Trip” in the subject line.

Hurry, space is limited!

GSA Elections

Posted on : 24-02-2012 | By : BentleyGSA | In : announcements


The GSA Board is seeking candidates to run for GSA President and GSA Sr. Vice President for the 2012-2013 Academic Year.

Candidate Teams:

The GSA Constitution requires that the GSA President and Sr. Vice President be elected positions and that candidates for these two offices run united as a team. The Sr. VP, in addition to various position duties, assumes the Presidency should the President be unable to serve. This is a succession provision in the GSA Constitution to better ensure that whoever is serving as GSA President is elected by the student body. The other Board Positions are appointed, similar to the way the US President appoints a cabinet.

A call for applicants for the appointed Board positions will go out after the election for President and Sr. Vice President has been concluded.

We want to hear from you!
