Welcome New Graduate Students
We are looking forward to getting to know you. This university-wide orientation offers new graduate students valuable preparatory information in the form of workshops, discussion forums, and a resource fair. Students often arrive with a host of questions about policies, finances, health insurance, and other on- or off-campus services. Our goal is to deliver information, promote a sense of community and ease the anxiety that can accompany the transition into a new environment and culture.
We encourage new students to attend this event in addition to any program-specific orientation your college, school, or department may hold.
