Graduate Student Association

Welcome to the GSA!

President: Alicia Plemmons aplemmons2@student.gsu.edu

Vice President: Sean Bokelmann sbokelmann1@student.gsu.edu

The Economics Department’s Graduate Student Association (GSA) is a non-profit, student-run organization established for the benefit of all economics graduate students at the Andrew Young School of Policy Studies at Georgia State University. All officially-enrolled economics graduate students are automatically members of the GSA, and the GSA levies no dues.  The GSA promotes scholarship, develops a spirit of cooperation and fellowship among economics graduate students, and fosters interaction between graduate students and faculty.


What do we do?

The GSA organizes presentations by notable economists (both internal and external), professional development seminars, workshops, and a variety of social events, etc.  Each year is tailored to the needs and requests of the students.  In the past few years, we have:

Participated in BOOF literacy training for youth with other AYS organizations

Led group outings to movies, professional mixers, and conferences

Hosted training sessions for EndNote, LaTex, giving a presentation, and more

Spearheaded AYSPS-wide events such as Coffees with the Dean and the Annual Picnic

Organized review sessions for comprehensive exams and job market packets

Taken day trips to Tybee Island, Cataloochie ski resort, and more


How do I join?

All economics graduate students are automatically members of the GSA. You can visit our facebook site at http://www.facebook.com/econgsa/. We are always available to answer questions about the organization, the program, or the life of a graduate student at AYSPS.  Every graduate cohort has anAmbassador responsible of sharing your ideas with us or feel free to email us directly!
