Graduate students can participate in University-affiliated organizations and activities. As a Columbia University student, you can participate in and enjoy hundreds of diverse social, religious, cultural, academic, athletic, political, literary, professional, public service and other organizations. At SEAS, graduate students are encouraged to become active members of the Engineering Graduate Student Council (EGSC). The EGSC is a recognized group that consists of representatives from each of the nine academic departments at SEAS. The objectives of the EGSC are to foster interaction among graduate engineering students, to serve as a voice for graduate engineering students, and to sponsor social and education events of interest to the graduate engineering community.
