Public Service Organization

Throughout the academic year, the Public Service Organization (PSO) offers opportunities for Bush School students to interact with and serve in the greater Bryan/ College Station community. Each service opportunity is led by a pair of student leaders (one first-year, one second-year), who organize the initiative. These include projects with the greater Texas A&M University community and local nonprofit organizations as well as projects that are student-led initiatives. Some examples include The Big Event, Habitat for Humanity, Relay for Life, Down Syndrome Association Buddy Walk, collecting money to send to typhoon victims in the Philippines, and the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign.

"As the executive chairwoman of PSO, I believe my leadership skills and communication skills have been advanced. This experience has transformed me into a better decision maker. PSO partners with so many outside organizations, that it's important to reflect on how your decisions will affect others internally and externally. In my experience, being an effective and transparent communicator creates less confusion and more approachability, comfort, and trust. Therefore, students have a relaxed and easy going experience volunteering through PSO. These advanced communication skills also help in fostering relationships with other internal and external stakeholders. Holding a leadership position at the Bush School is a very rewarding experience. I continue to learn about the School's organizational culture and structure, not just from the perspective of the student, but now as an employee of the School," said Gabriella Medina, chair of the Bush School Public Service Organization.

The organization is led by a chair and vice chair, who are second-year students, and by a treasurer, secretary, and second-vice chair, who are first-year students.
