The Upper East Side provides a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of more crowded areas of the city. Small cafés and eateries line the streets, and every modern convenience is just a block or two away.

The Graduate Student Executive Council (GSEC) acts as a liaison to WCGS leadership and advocates for students’ administrative, academic and social needs.
