Student Life

In addition to the world-class education and extensive network of researchers, faculty and alumni, being a graduate student at the school means being active outside of the classroom, in both student groups and campus activities.

Our students lead a rich life, and they do so in a diverse, inclusive environment with other students hungry to participate. From student groups focusing on your own regional interests and professional development to campus-wide opportunities utilizing the best academics in the University of California system, students at GPS are intricately connected to one another.
