The Merage Student Association is a student-run organization whose purpose is to enhance the student experience beyond the classroom. This is achieved through partnership between the MSA Board, clubs, and the student body. Professional and social events are organized by the students for the students. This is how we foster the close-knit community that makes the Merage experience so unique. All Merage graduate students are eligible members of MSA.

Our clubs are the heart of the MSA. Clubs are vital to growing our network, helping students reach their career goals, proving social interaction, and supplementing the educational experience outside of the classroom. As a student and member of the MSA, you have the opportunity to attend club events or join a club in a leadership role.

Unify, Communicate, Integrate!

The Merage Student Association enhances your professional, educational, and personal experience by:

  • Unifying: Provide events that bring students together across section, year, and program
  • Communicating: Ensure that events are well planned and information is delivered in an effective manner
  • Integrating: Provide events that are inclusive and account for various interests, backgrounds, and demographics
