Every year, the School of Graduate Studies, the Division of Student Life, and the Graduate Students' Union host Graduate Orientation for all new graduate students at Memorial University (those students admitted to graduate programs for the current year, from Winter to Fall semesters).

Graduate Orientation is designed to help graduate students in their unique transition to graduate school.

Students can expect a Graduate Orientation Welcome Event on Tuesday, September 6, 2016, which will include; a keynote address from the Dean of Graduate Studies, information sessions, booth presentations, free food and giveaways! For more information and to register for the event, please visit the Graduate Orientation Welcome Event 2016 website.

A variety of events and information sessions will be offered to students during the first week of classes as part of the campus wide Welcome Week.

Items highlighted in orange are specifically for graduate students. Items marked with an asterisk (*) are part of the GSU Grad-Fest events. All other events are open to both undergraduate and graduate students. For specific Grad-Fest event details, please visit the GSU website.

*New graduate students should review and follow the steps outlined on the New Students page.
