Graduate Student Association

The Graduate Student Association of the Institute of Fine Arts assists in the education of students and promotes the quality of student life by acting as liaison between students and members of the faculty and administration. It holds open meetings for discussion of issues of concern to students, and officers meet regularly with the director of the Institute. The GSA conducts an orientation meeting and reception for new students at the beginning of the fall semester; organizes many of the Institute's Lecture Series and social events during the academic year; and facilitates the rental of lockers at the Institute for a nominal charge to students.
