President's Message

Dear Fellow Graduate Students, 

Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! The Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a valuable cooperative of graduate students seeking to enrich and enliven our experience at The Catholic University of America. The GSA provides funds for conference presentations and attendance; it seeks to aid in dissertation and thesis research; it sponsors lectures and events; and it does its best to create opportunities to escape from the dark recesses of the library for a drink with fellow travelers in the graduate school experience!

In addition, the GSA teams up with many on-campus offices, including Campus Ministry, The Center for Academic Success, and The Writing Center and Career Services to better serve our students’ spiritual and professional needs. The graduate student representatives who serve as Senators work to ensure that our experience at CUA is a well-rounded one. If you aren’t a senator yourself, be sure to talk to your department senator to learn about opportunities, events, and happy hours sponsored by the GSA.

Welcome back for the 2015-2016 school year! We are glad to be here to serve you!
Emily Butler
President, Graduate Student Association
