Graduate Student Orientation

At the beginning of both the Fall and Spring semesters, the Graduate School offers an orientation to introduce new students to graduate student life at UM. We encourage new graduate students to attend two events. The first event is the Graduate Orientation session, hosted by the Graduate School, where representatives from various UM offices address the general audience about key academic and non-academic matters essential for incoming graduate students. The second event is GradFest, hosted by the Graduate Student Association (GSA) in collaboration with the Graduate School. GradFest is a resource fair, where several student offices and services, as well as outside vendors, will table to provide information in an informal setting. The event also features hourly raffles and is followed by a mixer, where new students can get to know their graduate peers in a more casual setting.
