Anxious about starting graduate school? Don’t know what to expect or where to go for answers?

Join us for the JumpStart Orientation for new graduate students! Hear from current Master’s and PhD students about what they wish they knew before starting graduate school and their strategies for success. From campus resources to funding your education to enjoying the surrounding community, get a jump on your semester!

The JumpStart is designed to complement departmental orientations, providing information and resources from across campus. We will be offering it in-person as well as online, via a Zoom session. The JumpStart will feature a series of speakers offering key resources and breakout room Q&A sessions on the graduate student experience. For more in-depth information, please see the updated Graduate Studies guide.
