Each academic year, PULSe hosts three events for students and faculty. These include a retreat, an open house, and a recruitment visit.


At the start of the fall semester, the PULSe Retreat is held in the John S. Wright Center at Martell Forest. The event serves as a welcome to our new PULSe students and as a gathering for the diverse PULSe student body and faculty.

The day includes poster sessions showcasing all available labs, discussion groups held by each Training Group, and a barbecue to allow some relaxation time.
