New Graduate Student Orientation Registration (NGSO)

Location: Joan C. Edwards Playhouse-Booth Theater

In the Friday general session, you will have the opportunity to interact with members of our graduate alumni panel as well as our current graduate student panel. What topics would you like them to address? What questions do you have?

Orientation will be the first professional event you will attend as a new graduate student. \"Business casual\" is appropriate for this occasion. Click HERE for examples of business casual.
Orientation concludes with a reception at the President\'s House from 6:00 to 7:30pm on Friday evening. Vegetarian options will be provided. Invitations and directions will be provided at the registration desk in the Playhouse when you check-in between 11:30 pm and 12:30 pm on Friday, August 23. Don\'t miss out on this opportunity to connect with one another, with current graduate students and alumni, and with the President. We will conduct several prize drawings during the reception for participants who complete the orientation evaluation form at the end of the Alumni Panel.
You are welcome to drive your own vehicle from campus to the President\'s House near Ritter Park (a five minute drive), but we will also provide bus transport to and from the President\'s House for those without vehicles.
