Getting Involved

Would you like to participate in the GSG? Here are some ways to get involved.

Attend a GSG Assembly meeting. All graduate students are welcome and may bring up new business at any meeting. Assembly meetings are held at 5:45 p.m. in Room 102 of Jadwin Hall on the second Wednesday of each month.

Volunteer at a GSG-sponsored social event or alumni mixer.  We are always in search of volunteers to check IDs, serve drinks, and DJ at our awesome GSG parties!  To volunteer, please contact our Special Events Officer, Mike Hepler.

Become a Representative in the GSG Assembly. Represent your Academic Department or Program, Special Interest group, or Housing Committee at GSG Assembly meetings. Vote on issues important to graduate students!  There are currently several empty seats in the assembly.
