As a graduate student, there are always articles to read, papers to write, exams to grade, and projects to work on, but it’s important to take a break from graduate school life on occasion, and connect with your peers and the community and life outside of the lab.
Get involved with the GSC!
The Graduate Student Council (GSC) hosts meetings the first Monday of each month at noon. All K-State graduate students are welcome to attend monthly meetings to engage in discussion about important issues that impact graduate students, learn about events for graduate students, and find opportunities to get involved. Involvement in a GSC leadership role, participating in research forums, and attending professional development seminars and social events are great ways to get to know other graduate students across campus.
Looking to connect with other students who share your interests beyond the focus of your graduate program? Visit the Office of Student Activities and Services (OSAS) to explore the hundreds of student organizations at K-State.
The International Buddies Program pairs local K-State students, staff, and community members with international students, scholars and family members. Once paired, Buddies meet regularly to learn about each other's cultures, customs, and explore Manhattan & K-State.
