The Undergraduate Studies Council (UGSC) is the official representative student organization for the School of Undergraduate Studies. We provide a platform for UGS students to explore leadership while planning and executing beneficial events and activities for fellow students.

UGSC belongs to the Senate of College Councils, the student governance organization engaged in academic affairs on campus.
