We offer a new graduate student orientation in the Graduate Life Center at Donaldson Brown (GLC) on Friday, August 19, 9:00-11:00 in the Auditorium. Morning refreshments will be served 8:30-9:00 in the Multipurpose Room.

We also provide a variety of information sessions and activities to help new students get started in their graduate career, including an information fair in the GLC between August 15-19. The fair features more than 50 campus and community organizations and services.
