The Botany and Plant Pathology Graduate Student Association 

Graduate students in BPP form the Graduate Students Association (GSA). This organization provides a handbook for incoming graduate students, offers an orientation program for the department's new graduate students, and sponsers social and professional activities throughout the year.

The GSA is comprised of all graduate students in the department. In past years, it has been a fairly strong and positive force in developing a close working relationship among students and faculty. The GSA sponsors several social activities throughout the year, including an active orientation program for new students. In recent years, the GSA has been fortunate enough to have representatives who are able to participate on departmental committees. Funding for GSA-sponsored activities is accumulated from fundraising events, coffee room proceeds, T-shirt sales, and private donations.
