Activities and Organizations
The CUNY Graduate Center draws an accomplished, diverse, and scholarly collective of students and faculty. We encourage students to enrich their CUNY experience by engaging with their peers through campus activities and organizations. With 46 student organizations, on-campus events offered throughout the academic year, and the opportunities afforded by living and studying in NYC, there are countless ways for every GC student to get involved.
Graduate students have access to activities, organizations, and discounts designed to enrich the student experience.
The DGSC is the sole policy-making student body organization at The Graduate Center, representing the interests of both doctoral and master’s students.
The Graduate Center offers students fitness classes as well as discounted memberships to local gyms.
The DGSC recognizes 46 interdisciplinary chartered organizations, including AELLA (Latino and Latin-American Students Association); CUNY Women in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math; the Immigration Working Group; and the Women of Color Network.
The GC Presents event series features thought-provoking panel discussions, diverse performances, and unique perspectives on timely topics—putting Graduate Center students at the center of the conversation.GC Presents Events
