The University of Arizona

Graduate Orientation

During orientation, new students will learn about available University of Arizona resources, get tips on surviving graduate school, meet new peers, and meet the UA mascots Wilbur and Wilma! Free lunch, prize drawings and a vendor fair will wrap up the day.  Also, students will be offered a free Arizona red T-shirt and information packet (limited supplies, first-come, first-served).

Information sessions will be presented throughout the morning on a variety of topics to help you make the transition to graduate school.
