Student Staff in the College Houses:
Each College House has a diverse team of Graduate Associates (or GAs), graduate students selected from the doctoral and professional programs of the University's twelve schools. GAs bring a slightly different viewpoint to the life of the community and also offer special academic or professional expertise in their fields of study. GAs sponsor or join in the numerous academic and co-curricular activities of each College House.
Graduate Associate applications are currently closed; we will begin accepting applications for next year's staff beginning February 3, 2015.
