Graduate students are encouraged to participate fully in department professional and social activities. The department’s Graduate Student Association is an informal organization designed to serve the needs of graduate students and represent their interests. The association has representation on various departmental committees. The association also helps to sponsor the orientation for new students and various social activities. Membership in the association is open to all graduate students in Agricultural and Applied Economics. 

A larger organization, the Virginia Tech Graduate Student Assembly (GSA), is a university organization to which graduate students of all departments may send delegates. The GSA provides a forum for discussion of issues affecting graduate students at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. Members of the GSA serve on university-wide committees to insure adequate graduate student input in university activities.
