Graduate Student Association  

Hello and welcome graduate students!

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents graduate students at Towson University. We address the needs and concerns that arise during pursuits of graduate studies. The GSA hosts events throughout the academic year to build community among the graduate population and aid in professional development. Some events include New Graduate Student Orientation, Career Center Workshops, and social activities. There are many resources available to graduate students, from Writing Center services to use of library facilities and assistance. In addition, if you need help accessing Cook Library resources, visit the Cook Library Grad Guide or the Cook Library Guides for the help you need.

The GSA co-presidents are Alex Weghorst from Fisher College of Science and Math and Tosin Ogunkoya from the College of Health Professions. The other GSA officers are Wangui Muthaka from the College of Business and Economics, Theodore Shusterman from the College of Fine Arts and Communication, Rahel Fesseha from the College of Education, and Kelly Rogan from College of Liberal Arts. The GSA is dedicated to your success at Towson University. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns or questions.

Graduate students GSA President Alex Weghorst and Vice President Kelly Rogan attended the 16th Annual Student Government Tiger Pride Day in Annapolis on February 24, 2015. Tiger Pride day serves as a rare opportunity for participants to meet with legislators and express their support for critical needs in higher education. Our efforts were received with enthusiasm!
We discussed the following issues with legislators:
• The Maryland Second Chance Act of 2014
• Intern Protection (Senate Bill 604; House Bill 229)
• Funding for a new Health Professions building
• Funding for a new Science Building (and STEM related programs)
• Keeping college tuition affordable
If you are a graduate student and are interested in finding out more about Tiger Pride Day (either details about this year or participation in next year’s event) please contact the Graduate Student Association. Graduate students are a vital component in the Towson University community and it is important that your voices are heard!

The Graduate Student Center, Pschology Building, Room 205 is OPEN from Monday through Thursday 9 AM to 7 PM and Friday 9 AM to 4:30 PM. Come hang out. It is a good place to study and network!
