Graduate Student Association

St. John's University Graduate Student Association (GSA) represents the interests of over 5,000 graduate students at St. John's University across all campuses.

The GSA is designed to serve as a forum for opinions and suggestions concerning education, progress, empowerment, experience, and the quality of life as a graduate student. It will not only work as a resource center for students, but also act as a liaison between students and administration to provide constant communication and feedback. The organization will allow for students and faculty to participate and enhance the culture of St. John's University. The GSA strongly believes in providing full support to graduate students in order to maximize success in all academic endeavors.
