Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics Graduate Student Association
Social and recreational activities are a big part of grad school in DARE.
The purpose of the DARE Graduate Student Association is to provide an opportunity for current, prospective, and alumni students to maximize utility, and set marginal benefits equal to marginal costs.
The graduate students of the Department of Agricultural and Resource Economics (DARE) at Colorado State University initiated a Graduate Student Association (GSA) in the Fall of 2006. The purpose of the DARE GSA is to provide an opportunity for current, prospective, and alumni graduate students to interact and network with other students and professors, and to address the day-to-day issues faced by these students. The GSA provides a conduit which facilitates communication between students and faculty in order to ensure a smooth and easy transition into the department, as well as through every day life as a graduate student.
The GSA holds several meetings throughout the year. The purpose of these meetings is to address the daily needs of students, regarding their classes, department technological issues, research, and anything else that happens to come up. The GSA also organizes several recreational activities which range from hiking trips to barbeques to evenings out in Historic Fort Collins. The tandem of the meetings and recreational activities greatly impacts the welfare of the students in a positive way.
