Event Opportunities

Graduate students are invited to attend all events open to the university, including most events sponsored by STAR and DAB. 

  • Events that are held on campus, are open to all students and do not require a ticket are open to graduate students (examples include lectures, concerts).
  • For events that require a ticket, there will be a ticket supply at a discounted rate available only for graduate students. There are a limited number of tickets and they can be purchased through University Tickets. As with all STAR or DAB sponsored events, students attending are required to agree to a waiver at time of ticket purchase, ride to and from the event on the bus that is provided and to adhere to the Student Code of Conduct. Graduate students are required to show their St. Thomas ID at the time of event. 
  • Giveaways that support campus-wide initiatives, such as Homecoming Sweatshirts, will be available for graduate students to purchase at a small cost. Marketing of such giveaways will be available to inform students of the opportunities and process for purchase.

Other general discounted tickets for sporting events, theater productions or other events in the Twin Cities are available for graduate students and the university community through Tommie Central.

Some graduate programs charge a graduate student activity fee and use this to fund graduate student clubs and programs in their school. These opportunities can usually be found on the school/college's website.  These graduate student clubs and programs offer a wonderful opportunity for graduate students to get involved. Graduate students are allowed to be members of undergraduate clubs but are not eligible to run for a leadership position or eligible for undergraduate student activity fees.
