During orientation, new students will learn about available UA resources, get tips on surviving graduate school, meet new peers, and meet the UA mascots, Wilbur and Wilma! The vendor fair will wrap up the day. Orientation is a fantastic way to discover the wide range of resources that are available to UA graduate students, from funding and research to health care and gym programs. We highly encourage all new grads to take advantage of orientation.
Information sessions will be presented throughout the morning on a variety of topics to help you make the transition to graduate school. These typically include the following (subject to change):
Financial Aid and Funding Resources for Graduate Education
External Funding Resources
Coping with Stress
UA Library Resources
Campus Health Services and Student Health Insurance
Time Management Tips
Career Services for Graduate Students
Tips for Teaching Assistants
The deadline to register for orientation is August 18th, 2019, 11:59PM.
