Some activities that the GSC coordinates include:

  • The Graduate Research Symposium
  • Social Events  such as Apple Picking and Pub Nights
  • GSC 5K Run/Walk (which benefits RESPOND, Inc. and Project HOPE)
  • Annual food and clothing drives

The GSC also manages funding for the various Graduate Student Organizations on campus.

Graduate Student Lounges

Two on-campus locations are designated for exclusive use by graduate students. The West Hall lounge includes a conference room, a computer room with a free photocopier, as well as drinks and snacks for graduate students. The entrance is located at the garden-level door on the northeast side of the building. All current graduate students have 24-hour access with their Tufts Student ID card.

The Curtis Hall lounge includes multiple spaces designed for graduate student social interaction. It is adjacent to the Tufts’ Brown and Brew Coffee House.
