Get Involved - Come Join Us!

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.
