The SRF and the Graduate Student Association hold a Happy Hour every month, usually the 3rd Friday. We provide appetizers, beer, and soda.

The SRF also holds monthly general meetings. These meetings happen every 2nd Thursday at noon in room B159. In the SRF monthly meetings we give updates about the SRF events and activities and also bring a speaker to talk about a topic of interest to the postdoctoral community at Scripps.
