Graduate Orientation

Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) is a required program offered for all new degree-seeking students during the week before the fall semester begins. GSO provides an opportunity for new graduate students to become acquainted with other new and returning graduate students and to meet with their department advisors and faculty. During GSO, new graduate students will be welcomed by key administrative, staff, and faculty members and they will receive an introduction to campus services, acquire information about academic standards, and participate in culture and language activities.
