Get involved in campus life and support fellow grad students by attending the GSA candidate forum tonight! The meeting will take place this evening from 6:30 to 7:30 in room 213 of the Miller Learning Center. At the forum you will hear from 8 graduate students running for the President and Vice President positions of GSA. Each candidate will give a short speech highlighting their platform, focusing on key issues facing graduate student, and offering possible solutions to the issues addressed. At the end of each speech, the current president of GSA as well as the audience will have the opportunity to ask each individual up for candidacy questions pertaining to his or her platform. In addition to learning more about the candidates for GSA, the forum will be followed by a short presentation by GSA’s current president on UGA’s current budget cut and its possible implications on graduate students. Please note, voting for GSA will open Thursday, March 25 at 5:00 p.m. on Oasis, and will close Thursday, April 1 at 5:00 p.m. If you are interested in learning more about the candidates or want to RSVP to the facebook event, please click here.

Whether you’re graduating this May and moving across the country or just looking to be rewarded for cleaning out the house this spring, GSA can help you in such endeavors. Published weekly, the GSA Marketplace is an online forum where students can post listings and advertisements for goods and services. Using this resource, students have the opportunity to advertise goods including products, cars, as well as amenities, stimulating a buyer/ seller relationship among the graduate community. The market is also a valuable portal for students to request or provide services such as recruiting participants for a research study. To take part in such an afforded win-win situation, please click here.
Yet another reason to the love the Grad School is for its Graduate Student Association (GSA). As the University of Georgia’s student government and advocacy organization, GSA represents all graduate and professional students alike. It is the portal through which representatives from every department, program, or student organization have a direct connection to the UGA President, the UGA administration, and the Graduate School. Through monthly meetings representatives work with the organization’s executives to advance student advocacy, interdisciplinary events, and community service. To be more in the know of what’s going on around campus, signup for the GSA listserv to receive weekly announcements with information on activities and events, lectures, and other opportunities that may be of interest to graduate students.

Students — keep January 15 locked in your memory.
That’s the day abstracts are due for the Graduate School Association’s interdisciplinary conference in March. Master’s, doctoral and professional students will have the opportunity to present their research to an audience of scholars.
The theme of the conference is “Health and the Disciplines,” however, the focus won’t be all on the science fields. Instead, the theme is meant to be a springboard to invoke discussion among many fields. We’re hoping members of one of the Graduate School’s newer programs, Health & Medical Journalism, will have lots to contribute to the conference!
GSA’s interdisciplinary conference will be held on March 27 at the UGA Tate Student Center. You can find more information here.
