Graduate School Orientation is a half-day event for new incoming graduate students. The program is set to provide new students with valuable information that assists with the transition to graduate school and the surrounding community. Sessions during orientation will include an overview of resources and opportunities on campus and in Chapel Hill.

We are including a Student Services Fair during the orientation program, where you will be able to meet people and learn about various campus and community organizations.

Immediately following the fair, we will have a light reception at the Carolina Club hosted by The Graduate School and the Graduate and Professional Student Federation (GPSF).
