|The Graduate Student Organization
The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) represents the interests and concerns of the students in the various biomedical sciences graduate programs at the Columbia University Medical Center. Our mission as a group is to meet on a regular basis to promote social and academic interactions among students from the different programs, represent and voice the general interests regarding graduate student life issues, encourage the integration of new graduate students into our student body, and importantly, provide graduate students opportunities to be positively involved in the communities of our school and the greater city of New York where we are located. The GSO is run by a group of elected graduate students who represent the diverse student body and support the uttermost personal, intellectual, and social development of all graduate students it represents. The GSO thus provides a forum for which voices can be heard and actions can be taken to enhance the everyday life of C.U. graduate students.
