AGSO

Welcome to the NMSU Astronomy Graduate Student Organization website! The AGSO was created to interface the astronomy graduate students with the more general student organizations (ASNMSU, GSC) and the astronomy department. In this website we’ve compiled advice and information for incoming and current graduate students. Below you will find information on our current grad students. Curious about previous students? Check out the astronomy department alumni page.
