Graduate Student Orientation

Welcome, Grad Vikings!

The School of Graduate Studies wants to ensure all our new Grad Vikings have access to the information and relationships that will propel them forward. We understand that each person comes to us with unique circumstances, schedules, and other constraints. Consequently, we are hosting Graduate Student Orientations in two modalities. Sign up for your preferred format!  

Asynchronous Online (Canvas):

Access orientation materials at your convenience, giving you the flexibility to engage with the content on your own schedule. 
Learn more about this option. 

In-person (On Campus): 

Connect with your fellow graduate students face-to-face, and enjoy coffee, lunch, networking, and information about campus resources.  

  • Date: Saturday, September 7, 2024 
  • Time: 9 am-1 pm 

  • Location: On Campus (Details provided in sign-up confirmation email) 

  • Seating is limited. Sign-up is required. 

  • Note: Do not let parking keep you from attending the in-person event. If you do not have a parking pass yet and sign up to attend the in-person event, you will be able to park in Commuter spaces for the event.

Sign up for your preferred format!  

If you need specific information before the in-person event, you may find the asynchronous orientation informative, although lacking the networking and engagement of the in-person event. If you need additional information, please email us, call 978.542.6323, or visit our office: 352 Lafayette St., Sullivan Building, Room 113. 

When 1:00pm
