Mason’s first student space devoted solely to graduate and professional students will be called the Graduate Student Center, announced the Graduate and Professional Student Association (GAPSA), which advocated for its establishment.

The center, a collaboration between University Life and the Provost’s Office, is a multipurpose facility that provides study and work space for graduate teaching and research assistants, a focal point for socializing among graduate and professional students and a temporary location for GAPSA headquarters. The center opened in January.

GAPSA president David Arditi also announced that the center will display the artwork of graduate students in the School of Art.

“GAPSA is very excited to be developing a partnership with the School of Art graduate students to display art in the Graduate Student Center,” says Arditi.  “I hope that GAPSA continues to build partnerships of this nature to increase graduate student involvement and develop a community on campus. We are excited that the center can become a point where minds can come together across disciplines to facilitate discussion.”

The center is temporarily located on the Fairfax Campus in the Science and Technology II Building, Rooms 100, 100B and 100C.
