Social Events

ASPP believes it is vital to offer social events for our community to connect and engage with each other. Our professional practice at times can leave us feeing isolated or lonely. Our social events have historically included:


A Welcome Brunch is held at the beginning of the fall semester. At this event, new candidates and faculty are welcomed into our family and meet other candidates, faculty and the entire Post-Graduate community.


A Last Day of Classes Dinner to celebrate a successfully completed academic year.


An End of the Year Graduation Event & Garden Party is held in May. At this time, we recognize and celebrate the candidates that have recently graduated from the various Post-Graduate programs and enjoy each other's company.

Now that many classes are again meeting in-person, we are reviving the long-ago tradition of a quick "In-Between Classes Gathering" in the student lounge at Derner. We hope that candidates will enjoy this opportunity to get to know candidates from other cohorts.

2023 Welcome Brunch

We celebrated the beginning of academic year 2023-2024 with a traditional ASPP Welcome Brunch on October 14th at the home of Elizabeth Sullivan and her husband, Chris. Although it was a cool and rainy day, we had a full house of candidates, faculty and supervisors. We hope that we made our new community members feel at home!
