Yes, the Graduate School hosts an optional (but recommended) new student orientation and resource fair as part of Grad Welcome Week before the start of the fall term.The information will be posted on the Graduate School website and sent to you via email. Please be sure to keep your email address updated during the summer. Many academic programs also hold orientations, some required. Fall is the only term that the Graduate School hosts orientations. However, sessions are recorded and made available year-round. If you are starting in winter, spring, or summer term, please contact your graduate program to see if they will be hosting an orientation for newly admitted students.
