GSA Starlight Gala

The annual GSA Starlight Gala is an evening dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments and community of graduate students at Brock University.

On behalf of our Starlight Gala planning committee, we want to thank everyone who was able to attend our annual Starlight Gala on Saturday, April 2. It was an historic night as our Gala became the largest ever in-person event for graduate students at Brock! We were also able to cap off our 20th year of operations as a GSA – thank you for celebrating with us.

While all may not have been able to attend, we do want to share some of the wins of extraordinary individuals who were recognized for their work, research, community service and dedication to the Brock graduate student community. Congratulations to all!
