Grad Students

Unique grad-only resources, experiences and opportunities have been designed with you in mind—to guide you from your first time stepping onto campus to receiving your master’s degree and beyond.

Community building

On-campus community building

Keeping your grad family close is important, and SAA is here to help. SAA supports graduate community-building efforts across campus and hosts a winter appreciation dinner for Community Associates (CAs). CAs are grad students who live in grad residences and work with the Graduate Life Office to foster community.
