  • Postdoc Social
    First Annual Fall Postdoc Social

    The first annual Postdoctoral Association  (PDA) Fall Social took place on October 21st and was a great success! This event was a chance for postdocs to socialize and get to know each other better, as well as get to know PDA leadership and the resources we offer. The event included icebreaker activities with catered lunch provided by the UNH Graduate School followed by a social/happy hour at Hop & Grind in downtown Durham.
