Graduate Students Association

The Graduate Students Association (GSA) represents all UCSB graduate students. GSA is governed by an elected seven-member executive committee, which meets weekly, and an elected general council of graduate student departmental representatives, whose monthly meetings are open to all members. GSA executive committee members sit on and appoint students to various university committees. GSA also distributes a monthly newsletter, and schedules a variety of activities for graduate students. The GSA Lounge (UCen 2502) is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Free bagels and coffee are provided weekly, making it a congenial location for graduate students to unwind or study. In addition, the lounge is available to student groups who would like a place to meet. Further information is available from departmental graduate assistants, the GSA Web site at www.gsa.ucsb.edu, or the GSA office, UCen 2502. Telephone: (805) 893-3824.
