New Graduate Student Orientation Spring 2023

We host New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO) at the beginning of every semester to welcome new graduate and professional students to graduate community and the larger Aggie Family. NGSO gives us a chance to introduce our office to you and to introduce you to services and resources on our campus. It also gives you a chance to meet other incoming graduate students. It's informative, fun, and (oh yeah!) you could win prizes.  

NGSO is open to incoming Aggie graduate students only. If you are joining our community for a graduate or professional program, look out for invites via email.
