Gerontology Student Organization (GSO)

Why this organization? Why should I become a member?

Over the years, the Center on Aging has touched the lives of many K-State students. Those students have shown unwavering dedication and commitment to the secondary major in gerontology and serving older adults. Students want the opportunity to express their passion outside of the classroom. The Kansas State University Gerontology Student Organization will serve as the perfect outlet for students to network and participate in activities with their peers who share the same interests. We would love for you to join us in our aging related adventures this year.
