The Graduate Student Association hosts weekly department socials, graduate student activities, and an annual research symposium, EnviroDay. Funding for activities come from generous department support and faculty sponsorships, as well as dues from the students. A core group of officers is responsible for events with input and support from the graduate student body.
The GSA also runs an undergraduate research mentoring program to connect undergraduates interested in research with graduate students. A list of publications from current department graduate students is compiled twice a year to highlight research achievements.
Three large social functions are held each year:
- Pig roast (September)
- Holiday party (December)
- Spring fling (April)
All positions are for one academic year with elections occurring each Summer. Co-chairs are rising second-year graduate students selected by the outgoing officers.
There are also volunteer and appointed positions available such as Social Chairs, Prospective Student Chairs, EnviroDay Chairs, and Dr. Doughnuts.
