The Graduate Student Association’s (GSA) mission is to represent and support the interests of the University's current and future graduate student community by supporting scholarly activities and providing leadership, service, and social opportunities for its members. The GSA exists to enrich the experience of the University's graduate students and interested undergraduate students. The GSA accomplishes these objectives by responding to the changing collective needs of our primary constituents. The GSA is designed to serve all UST students. The Graduate Student Association includes the Graduate Senate, Graduate Clubs System and the Graduate Programming Board.
There are a variety of student clubs and organizations on campus for both undergraduate and graduate students. To find a complete list of clubs and organizations on campus, visit the Office of Student Activities in Crooker Center.
