New Graduate Student Welcome Event and Orientation

New Graduate Student Welcome Event and Orientation

August 19, 2019  •  5:30 - 7:30 pm  •   MSR 130

Sponsored by the Center for Excellence in Graduate Education (CEGE), the New Graduate Student Welcome Event and Orientation helps prepare the incoming class for graduate student life at Stan State. The program includes activities to help aquaint students with the many academic and student support services available at Stan State. Additionally, this event provides networking opportunities through which students can interact with their peers, faculty, and campus representatives. One of the most interesting activities of the event is the student panel in which current and former graduate students share their experiences and strategies to succeed during their graduate education. This year, participants of the student panel talked about the following topics: The impostor syndrome, balancing family and work, networking in graduate education, the importance of academic writing, and stress management.
