VIMS YARD SALE: This event is hosted by the VIMS GSA, but anyone from the greater community is welcome to attend - either as a vendor or as a buyer. There is always an eclectic mix of items perfect for people moving in or out.
FALL PARTY: Pig Roast. Beer Truck. Bounce House. Live Music. Need we say more?
VIMS SILENT AUCTION: The GSA Silent Auction Fundraiser takes place at the VIMS Holiday Party. Many items have been donated by our graduate students and local businesses and range from gardening to gym memberships. All proceeds support the VIMS Graduate Student Association. If you would like to donate to the Silent Auction, please contact [[gsaexec]].
CHILI COOK-OFF: Students, staff, and faculty go head-to-head to show off their chili and cornbread recipes. Vegetarian options are also available.
SPRING PARTY: Fish fry, plus all the goods from Fall Party. Although we've been jinxed with rain more times than we'd care to admit, it always proves to be a great time.
TGIs: These casual events happen throughout the year and are an opportunity for students to socialize with members from other departments and disciplines. They are frequently associated with other VIMS events, such as campus-wide seminars or Journal Club in association with the W&M Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.
OFF-CAMPUS EVENTS: VIMS GSA sponsors the purchase of food, non-alcoholic beverages, and decorations for several off-campus parties throughout the year. Historically, members of the GSA have volunteered to host a Welcome Party celebrating new students, a Halloween Party, a Holiday Formal, a St. Patrick's Day Party, and a Cinco de Mayo party.
