Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a student-run organization established for the benefit of all graduate and professional students at Kennesaw State University. All officially-enrolled graduate and professional students are automatically members of the GSA. The GSA promotes scholarship, develops a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among graduate students, and fosters interaction between graduate students and faculty. Check for meeting information and organization updates.

What We Do:

In addition to approving and providing funds for reimbursement related to conference travel, the GSA organizes presentations by notable practitioners (both internal and external), professional development seminars, workshops, and a variety of social events.  Each year is tailored to the needs and requests of the students.  This year we plan to:

Spearhead events such as Coffees, Movie Nights, Study Sessions, and a Picnic

Organize thesis and dissertation workshops

Host seminars on topics related to life balance

Partner with the Graduate College to Celebrate Graduate Student Appreciation Week

How do I join?

All graduate and professional students are automatically members of the GSA. We are always available to answer questions about the organization, the program, or the life of a graduate student at KSU.  Every graduate program has a Graduate Student Representative responsible for sharing your ideas with us.  You are welcome email us directly.
