Anyone interested in participating on the GSA is welcome. Elections are held yearly at the May Coffee Hour. A first year liaison to the GSA is elected by peer vote from any interested volunteers among the incoming first years during the fall semester. The responsibilities of the first year liaison include attending a monthly meeting and acting as a point person between the first year students and the GSA. The idea is to help the first years stay informed about resources and events in the department and to help the GSA better address concerns of new students.
