This year, we are moving to a new format for NGSO. We are offering a half-day program, running from noon to 5:00pm. Students will cycle through panels comprised of faculty, staff, and other students as well as attend a program-specific breakout session led by the graduate student ambassador representative from your department. We will also be offering campus tours as part of our program. We recognize students may not be familiar with our campus and we are excited at the opportunity to help them acclimate. The Graduate School supports all efforts for departmental orientations on campus. Please encourage your new students to attend NGSO. Attendees will receive important information and have the opportunity to meet with new students, staff, and members of the university community. We are excited to share our new program with you and all of our incoming students. As you schedule your own departmental orientation dates and finalize your details, please send all information and any relevant attachments to our coordinator of NGSO, Anna McGoff. We are in the process of updating our website to reflect accurate fall 2019 departmental orientation schedules and ask for this information to be received no later than February 19th, 2019. Please feel free to reach out with any questions.
