Graduate Student Community

DAGSE, Dalhousie's Association of Graduate Students in English

DAGSE facilitates communication between graduate students and faculty, and to help foster a sense of social as well as academic community among graduate students. Thus, we represent graduate students at departmental and graduate committee meetings, as well as organizing several social events throughout the year.

We are planning an orientation meeting for graduate students sometime in the beginning of September, and a meeting later the same month to elect new DAGSE members. We will keep you posted on specifics.

In the meantime, if you have any general questions regarding life in Halifax (apartment hunting tips, where to buy used furniture, good book stores, popular pubs...) or specific questions about the department and what to expect, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Jane Boyes, President (
Michael Cameron, Vice President
Sarah Boyle, Secretary/Treasurer
