Graduate Students!! Enhance your experience with the Graduate Student Association
Graduate students……………. Do you want to get involved and make a difference at the University of Toledo? Participating in the Graduate Student Association (GSA) may be the perfect opportunity for you! Over the past few years at the University of Toledo, the (GSA) has been rapidly growing and is seeking energetic and enthusiastic graduate students like you to get involved.

From a personal prospective……… the GSA has changed my graduate years in many ways. I decided to get involved in GSA in August 2011. As a graduate student, I have benefited from the GSA. This is an organization in which a small amount of effort on your part will benefit you in almost every aspect of your graduate program. I came to UT not knowing many students and having very few friends, as a result of participating in the GSA, I have made many friends from several different colleges at UT, many of whom I would have never met. I got to take advantage of the volunteering opportunities at UT such as at the Midwest Graduate Research Symposium (MGRS). This year, the MGRS will be in April 2013 with a goal of recruiting presenters from every graduate program that UT offers such as Sciences and Math, Business, Language and literature, Education, Engineering, HSHS, Law, Nursing, Pharmacy and Visual and Performing Arts.
If you are ambitious and looking to make the best of your graduate career at The University of Toledo, consider joining the Graduate Student Association. Don’t miss this opportunity to enhance your leadership skills and make connections with professionals in your field of study.
