Graduate Student Association

Greetings from the GSA!

The Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents graduate students at Saint Louis University. The GSA is governed by elected officers and its General Assembly consists of one representative from each graduate degree program. GSA sponsors the annual Graduate Student Research Symposium which showcases graduate student research, in both paper and poster formats. Graduate students may also apply for GSA awards for conference presentation and attendance, publication assistance, as well as summer research support towards thesis, dissertation, and exam preparation.

Annual GSA Kickball Tournament

Congratulations to "The Big Leballskis" who defeated the "Buckyball Buccaneers" 5-2 in the championship game!  The contest was tied at 2 going into the final inning, where the Leballskis scored 3 runs in the top of the inning.  However, the Buccaneers loaded the bases in the bottom of the inning to keep things interesting until the last out!

Thank you to all who participated; here is a group photo after the tournament.



Make a Difference Day 

Thank you to our GSA volunteers who made a difference by braving the cold weather and helping at a Greenway Community Garden in Jennings, Missouri!



Note from the GSA President (June 7, 2017): Due to the ongoing budget cuts at the university, there is no longer a graduate student administrator overseeing administrative functions for the GSA.  Please be patient with us as we transition away from having a graduate administrative assistant.  All functions will now be handled by the GSA executive board with assistance from the Office of Graduate Education.  Continue to direct any general questions or concerns to gsa@slu.edu or call (314) 977-2234.
