The Graduate Student Association (GSA) of Montana State University’s Chemistry and Biochemistry Department is a non-profit organization run by the department's grad students to provide a supportive environment for other grad students!

We exist to improve the graduate experience by hosting student events and workshops to bring our community together while providing resources for growth and development.

All our social events are open to post-docs and faculty in the department as well! We also promote graduate interactions with other MSU departments and the community.

Keep up-to-date with us on our social media!
