BGSO aims to curate events that serve the organization's members as well as the greater Carnegie Mellon University and Pittsburgh communities. We want to reflect the voices, attitudes, and perspectives of our constituency through our events, so please be vocal with your comments and suggestions. BGSO hosts a monthly General Body Meeting in which members are encouraged to attend, fellowship with others, discuss current events, and openly express their thoughts and feelings.
