GSA and Social Networks

Hello everyone! I hope you all had a fabulously overfilled Thanksgiving. I know I did. I do love some celery soup and cranberry sauce! YUM! And now it is December. YAY!

Anyway, I apologize for the lack of updates. Between a crashing computer (with two papers due no less) and the Holiday, I was out of the Internet world for quite some time. But I am here today with a new blog on some very important topics: The GSA (anyone guess what it stands for?!) and the grad studies social networks.

We will start off with the simpler, but just as important, portion of this post. The social networks. I am sure we all know the story on how facebook took down myspace with one fell swoop, right? Well, if not, it doesn't matter. What is important is that you know how to get the most info as possible on West Chester.

I work very hard to update all of these for your benefit! Show me some love!

The next portion is on the importance of the GSA to graduate life here on campus. The Graduate Student Association (did you guess that?) is THE group for graduate students here at WCU. As an executive member of the GSA, students can become involved with many of the committees here on campus. Last year I was active in the CAPC committee which voted on changes and additions to various curriculum. It was an awesome experience.

More importantly, the GSA helps out with conferences and research. There are two different grants one can apply for to complete various research projects. For more info go here:

They also throw social events for graduate students. The next one is December 9, 2011 at Landmark Americana in West Chester. Please email if you would like to attend!

Leave comments people! I am starting to think no one reads these :(

Have a great day!
