Get Involved

Graduate student organizations are a great way to engage with your community both inside and outside of your program.

Find a group that fits your interests and make contact! Mason360 is your portal for engaging with registered student organizations (RSOs). To view the full listing of organizations and see their schedules and details, please log in with your Mason NetID.

Mason's Graduate And Professional Student Association (GAPSA) is the primary community-building and advocacy body of the graduate student community.
