Welcome to Computer Science Graduate Student Association

The mandate of the Computer Science Graduate Student Association (CSGSA) is to improve the quality of Computer Science (CS) Graduate Student life. We are concerned with both social and academic issues. In order to improve the amount of social interaction amongst graduate students, we organize events like board game nights, get-togethers at the grad house and group trips to sports or outdoor events. Our role with regards to academics includes ensuring grad student representation on committees such as the Graduate Academic Plans, Admissions, and Operations committee.

Please note that our mandate above has not changed during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, due to restrictions in place, certain types of events will not occur.

Contact us if you have any requests.
