Khoury GSA

Khoury Graduate Student Association (KGSA)’s mission is to support and maintain a community among graduate students in the Khoury College of Computer Sciences at Northeastern University. Our intended audience is primarily PhD students in Khoury College, but Master’s students will also be welcome to participate. Just like other GSA organizations in other departments, we intend to serve as both a social space, and as a democratic body that will advocate for the interests of Khoury graduate students with the college administration.

Contact us via or the Khoury PhDs Slack #gsa channel: we are always happy to meet new people and hope to get more members! To get added to the Slack, use the <NEU‑username> email. Learn more about us and check out our calendar on this website.
