Graduate Student Committee

The Student Advisory Committee is re-branding itself as the Graduate Student Committee (GSC)! We want to make it clear that GSC represents graduate student interests in the CEOAS community. Our mission, duties, and activities will remain the same, just under a different name!

Our new e-mail address is gsc@coas.oregonstate.edu, but our website remains the same.
