The Graduate School's New Graduate Student Orientation



New Graduate Student Orientation

Become Acquainted with FSU Resources

Starting graduate school is an exhilarating time in a person's academic career. Many times students are in a new environment and know very little about the university outside their program. Florida State University wants to change that view. That is why we are excited to welcome new graduate students to our orientation! The New Graduate Student Orientation provides you with a full-day immersion to introduce you to campus resources. This includes a welcome from the Dean of The Graduate School, Dr. Mark Riley, a panel discussion, a campus and community resource fair, and tours of campus and the libraries. Additionally, there will be scheduled times to speak with Financial Aid, the Registrar, and other student offices.
