New GSC officers elected

MIT’s graduate students will be represented this coming year in the Graduate Student Council’s (GSC) officers-elect, who will take office in May: President Caleb J. Waugh, Vice President Alex Guo, Treasurer Parth Trivedi, and Secretary Chris D. Smith.

Waugh said that the group has outlined three major goals for the next year — rebranding the GSC and increasing its publicity efforts, tapping into the ideas and energy of students, and influencing developments in Kendall Square. See The Tech’s prior coverage last week at
