Classics Graduate Student Union (CGSU)
President: Kat Furtado
Social Chair: Justin Hamblin-Yule
What is the CGSU?
The CGSU is the general body of classics graduate students. The executive is elected annually, and we hold bi-annual meetings. Our goal is help provide a sense of community and belonging for all the grad students in the department. The exec acts as liaison between grad students and department administration, and is vital in organizing social events for the grad community. In the past year, we undertook a revitalization of the Woodbury library (you might even be sitting on some of the new furniture now!) and organized a number of social events (including a holiday Secret Saturnalia, a nature walk, and lots of pub nights). And we’ve remained connected during social distancing through a grad student group chat, regular zoom hangs, and even a pandemic scavenger hunt.
If you’re a classics grad student, then you’re one of us, and we’re here for you. Please feel free to get in touch, and we hope to see you at some of our future events!

Ulife is a one-stop website listing a large and diverse directory of student clubs, organizations, activities and opportunities on all three University of Toronto campuses.
