Sponsored Organizations

The Graduate Student Senate can officially endorse organizations in order to provide resources on campus. The GSS can reserve space on campus and assist in publicizing the group. The basic requirements for recognition are at least 75% grad student membership and the submission of a mission statement or constitution at a Senate meeting.

Soccer Club

We represent a diverse group of graduate students from various programs within the Graduate College of the University of Vermont with one goal: a desire to play and enjoy one of the world’s most fun games, soccer. In the spirit of friendship, we entreat students to wear indoor cleats or shoes as the game is played on the turf (artificial grass) field to avoid unnecessary injuries. The game is a Co-ed pick-up soccer activity meaning both men and women play together so we suggest individuals are very careful not to play aggressively or deliberately cause injury to another player. Game are every Friday 8pm to 10 pm in Patrick Gym, next to the indoor tennis court.

Indian Students' Association

The ISA is a group of Graduate and Undergraduate students of Indian origin studying at UVM. The primary goal of ISA is to help the incoming students settle down in the community. The association thrives to create a social network of the Indian community on campus and provide them with an opportunity to continue enjoying Indian customs and traditions while being away from home. It also organizes cultural as well as social events all year around and participates in various activities organized by the University. Along with other national as well as international student organizing bodies, it contributes to the vast diversity on campus.
