New graduate students socialize between sessions at New Graduate Student Welcome
The Graduate School invites all newly admitted graduate students to attend the Fall New Graduate Student Welcome event. Don't miss this opportunity to mingle with Graduate School deans and staff, hear from a panel of current students about grad student life, learn about the many campus and community resources available to you, and meet other new graduate students from across campus.
