Medieval & Renaissance Graduate Student Association

About Our Organization

The Ohio State Medieval and Renaissance Graduate Student Association (MRGSA) is an organization created to provide graduate students in any department affiliated with the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies with opportunities for professionalization, skills development, and networking.

MRGSA is led by a committee of graduate student officers, who are elected every year. Meet our 2016-17 officers here. Membership is open to anyone pursuing a relevant graduate degree at The Ohio State University, and we charge no dues or fees for involvement.

If you are interested in becoming a member or getting involved with our activities, we welcome questions and comments at mrgsaosu(at)
