UPDATE: View the Schedule of Events for Graduate Student Orientation here: Fall 2012 Graduate Orientation FINAL .
The Graduate School is making some changes to our Orientation this year, and has scheduled both the full-day and evening orientation programs on the same day – Thursday, August 16, 2012. Given the range of our graduate student body (full-time, part-time, employed, etc.), we hope to accommodate varying schedules and allow for engagement and overlap among the different student constituencies.
The details of the program will be published as soon as they are available, but here is a preview. For those who can attend during the day the program will start in the early afternoon with a series of workshops. Later there will be a Community Meeting which will cover the substantive topics which are essential for every new graduate student to learn. This will be followed by a dinner (hopefully a cookout!) and time to mingle with current graduate students and department representatives.
Stay tuned for updates!
Thursday, 8/16/12, approx. 12:00 – 7:30 pm, locations TBA
