Grad student lounge opens

2 February 2014 By Cody Boteler, Assistant News Editor No Comments

This semester, the Graduate Studies office moved from the Administration Building on York Road to the second floor of the more centrally located Psychology Building.
In the office, the Graduate Student Association put funds toward arranging a lounge for graduate students.
The lounge is a refitted conference room, located in the same suite as the Graduate Studies office and the Graduate Student Association office.
According to President of the GSA Ruslan Zelentsov, the lounge includes a projector, computer workstations and plenty of seating for graduate students looking for somewhere on campus to relax.
Alex Weghorst, one of the vice presidents of the GSA, said in an email that the recent changes in the GSA can “greatly benefit” all graduate students.
This semester, the GSA wants to focus on professional workshops, Zelentsov said.
According to Zelentsov, the GSA exists to “represent graduate students’ concerns and interests and to enrich personal, educational and professional experiences here at Towson.”
The Graduate Student Association has recently revitalized its online activity and social media presence, relying on Facebook and Twitter to keep its members updated on group activity.
