New Graduate Student Orientation Day


August 9, 2017

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/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 all new students to attend this event in addition to any program specific orientation your college and department may hold.

Georgia State University would like to thank the following 2016 sponsors for their support:
