Graduate Program Current Students

ESSM Graduate Student Association (GSA)

Welcome to the ESSM Graduate Student Association!  We strive to promote interconnectivity between graduate students within the department, hold social and professional events including lunches, journal clubs, and hiking trips, and serve as a voice for our department’s grads to the College of Agriculture and Life Science and Texas A&M University as a whole. All grad students are automatically a part of this, but are both welcomed and encouraged to participate as officers. As an active member, you have the opportunity to strengthen networking ties with invited speakers, prospective students, faculty and staff, and fellow colleagues; and, to some extent, familiarize within more internal procedures and policies. So, if you're interested in becoming an officer or have an event or idea that you would like to see in the department, find a current officer or speak with Dr. Georgianne Moore or Madysen Rydeen to let us know.  We would love to hear from you and make it happen!
