Graduate School Orientation

Welcome, New Graduate Roadrunners!

You are about to start an exciting journey of self-improvement, professional growth, and academic excellence and we are excited to join you on this journey, beginning with Graduate School Orientation. Join us for an evening of fun and learning. Meet and network with your fellow new students and hear from current students and faculty! We will have a special session for your guests as well. Bring them along so they can learn about your journey during the next few years and how to best support you.

Graduate School Orientation (GSO) provides the opportunity to receive an overview of graduate school special events, professional development programs, social activities, funding opportunities, and the NEW Graduate Resource and Academic Development (G.R.A.D.) space. Additionally, students can speak with their college student success centers and representatives from many other campus services.
