Congratulations on your admission and welcome to the University of Minnesota!
I invite you to attend the Orientation and Resource Fair for new graduate and professional students. 89% of past attendees surveyed said they would recommend to other new students that they attend these events. Here’s a sampling of what they had to say:
To orient oneself means to find one’s position in relation to unfamiliar surroundings.
The Graduate School’s orientation is designed to help you do just that so that you can get off to a great start in your career at the University of Minnesota. Being a graduate student is different than being an undergrad in many ways. You will be encouraged to find your own way – to think for yourself; to ask questions that don’t yet have answers; to be courageous; to explore unknown terrain. But you won’t have to do it alone.
We invite you to join your fellow graduate students at these two events to connect with one another, to learn about resources available to support you during your journey, and to discover what steps you can take now to plant the seeds for success down the road.
Questions should be directed to Char Voight (email@example.com).
We hope you will join us for one or both of these events!
Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Education
