Participation in student government provides a valuable opportunity for learning more about the University and the role students play in advocating for change, support, and resources. Unifying Georgetown’s diverse student community and their collective voices are the Georgetown Undergraduate Student Association and the Graduate Student Organization.

Georgetown University Student Association (GUSA)

GUSA serves as the voice of the undergraduate populace, and it affects nearly all aspects of student life. The two main bodies of GUSA, the Executive and the Senate, operate both independently and jointly to enhance the student experience.

Graduate Student Organization

The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) is the governing body for graduate students and also serves as an advisory board for student organizations composed primarily of graduate students. To help unite graduate students across the Georgetown campus, GSO hosts academic, networking, cultural and social events and also allocates funding to member organizations for events and programming. More information about the GSO can be obtained by emailing gso@georgetown.edu. Explore a list of GSO clubs on Hoyalink to learn more about the individual organizations.
