Each fall, the Graduate School hosts a campus-wide New Graduate Student Welcome (NGSW) that serves to complement orientation activities offered by individual programs. This year the NGSW is August 30, 11:00am-4:00pm at Union South.

A new addition to this year’s NGSW is that several campus leaders will join the Dean of the Graduate School, William J. Karpus, in welcoming new graduate students. These leaders include Sarah Mangelsdorf, Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs; Patrick Sims, Vice Provost for Diversity and Climate; and Lori Berquam, Vice Provost for Student Life and Dean of Students.

New fall 2017 graduate students are strongly encouraged to attend the Welcome event on August 30. The agenda is available at
