The life of a graduate student in puruit of their degree and an in-depth knowledge of the field can be difficult. That's why every graduate student becomes part of the Graduate Student Association (GSA). GSA is a supportive and close-knit community of graduate students within the department. GSA members have the opportunity to participate in a social hour and events such as BBQs.
Whatever you encounter during your program, you can be assured other gradaute students and faculty will be there to help.
