On January 25th, the doors officially opened and a new chapter began in the nearly 50-year history of graduate students at Cleveland State University with the opening of the new Graduate Student Center.  While CSU provides many common areas, student lounges, and study spaces, this is the first space designated as a center for all graduate students.  College of Graduate Studies Dean, Dr. Nigamanth Sridhar, recognized the need for a centralized hub for establishing a common space for interdisciplinary conversation and collaboration and to foster graduate student success on campus.

The Graduate Student Center is home to the Graduate Student Resource Center and the Graduate & Professional Student Association (GPSA).  Grad students will find spaces for group work, quiet study, meetings, plus a lounge area.  Stop in to study, eat or just relax!

"The new Graduate Student Center is a much needed area for graduate students to congregate and feel at home at CSU.  No longer are we just visitors on a campus, we truly belong!  The Graduate & Professional Student Association has a space to conduct meetings, activities, and workshops.  This means the association is working to take a larger role on campus and enhance graduate students’ time at CSU.  In my opinion, the Graduate Student Center is one of the final pieces of the puzzle for CSU: recognizing all students as equally important on campus!"  Rita Kizys, GPSA co-president

All graduate students are invited to join the Graduate & Professional Student Association for priority access to the Center.  Receive first-hand information on CSU opportunities for graduate students or become involved in leadership opportunities with GPSA.  Help to develop this new community of grad students and a greater connection to your campus.   Volunteerism is always optional and extra-curricular activities/membership is an important part of your resume.
