The Graduate Division hosts the 2017 New Graduate Student Orientation for all incoming UC San Diego graduate students.
The day begins with a welcome address from the Dean of the Graduate Division and a keynote speech from the Chancellor. A panel session follows, providing an overview of the academic, financial, student affairs, accommodations, and mental/physical health services on campus. Later, a Resource Fair provides opportunities for new students to meet representatives from campus offices, clubs, and organizations. Finally, various workshops give students more chances to ask questions and get a better sense of what graduate student life will be like. A light breakfast and full lunch will be provided. There is also a social mixer co-hosted with the GSA from 5-10pm.
