Apply for Grounds for Discussion

Grounds for Discussion (GFD) is a program sponsored by the Office of the Dean of Students (ODOS). GFD is a student-directed and student-performed theatrical production held every year during Fall Orientation. The eight-member cast performs skits focused on the issues and decisions facing first-year students, which include high-risk drinking, the honor code, roommate disagreements, eating disorders, and sexual assault. Follow-up residence hall discussions with resident assistants are evening complements to the performance.
