About the GSSC

The Graduate Student Success Center (GSSC) is a unique space located in the historic Memorial Union, room 203 above the Java Stop, at Oregon State University.

The OSU Graduate School provides funding and support, while the MU hosts and services the center. Though the GSSC is facilitated through the Graduate School and housed through the Memorial Union, it is a student-led space.

A Graduate Research Assistant, appointed by the Graduate School, staffs the GSSC and collaborates with other graduate students to offer programming opportunities for Graduate Student Success, Academic Progress, Professional Development, and Interdisciplinary Dialogues.

The GSSC will also be a satellite home for resources from across campus providing more informal services. Join, create, discuss, share, and relax in a place made for you… your Graduate Student Success Center!
