About GESS Who!

The student association was founded in spring 2013 by students of the D-GESS Department from the ETH. GESSWho! was created with the objective to represent students in their relationship with the different Institutes within the ETH, the D-GESS Department and the VSETH. The goals and the structure of GESS Who! can be found in the Articles of Association (German only).

Our mission

More precisely, GESS Who! core mission is to represent the interests of GESS students, foster the community among the different programs and provide resources and social events that are student-centered. In addition, we collaborate with the different student representatives and their respective tasks, whether that is at the teaching committee or the department conference. Overall, our main tasks concern:

– We organise cultural and networking events, parties and other social events. This task is mainly handled by our culture team.

– General administrative duties are undertaken by the GESS Who! board. The specifics can be found in the meeting minutes of our monthly meetings.

– Collaboration with the elected student representatives is encouraged. They are an essential proxy for the students in the different teaching Committees and the Department Conference from D-GESS. For more information, on the teaching committee of your respective program, please consult here.
