Student Organizations

The Design and Merchandising Graduate Student Association (DMGSA) is the student-led organization for participants in Master of Science program. DMGSA’s mission is to enrich the graduate student experience by promoting professional development and increased opportunity for interactions between members and other students, academics, professionals, and the surrounding community. Past DMGSA activities have included workshops about the development of a curriculum vita, field trips to area museums, brown bag research discussions, outings to area design/fashion shows, social gatherings, and philanthropic/volunteer efforts (e.g., participation in a clothing drive for women in transition).
