The GSA believes that all members should have access to events and gatherings that promote exchange and friendship in a supportive environment. Each year we either plan directly or work with external partners to hold an ever-growing slate of activities for our members. We are always on the lookout for new ideas about things to do so if you have an idea we encourage you to let us know and we will do our best to bring it to fruition.
