Graduate Gold Rush Schedule

Fall 2024 Graduate Gold Rush 

Today, you will have the opportunity to meet fellow graduate students, connect with faculty and staff, and learn about important resources and services available to you. We will cover a variety of topics, including academic expectations, campus culture, graduate student life, and more.

Our goal is to provide you with the tools and support you need to thrive in your academic and personal pursuits. We know that starting graduate school can be both exciting and overwhelming, and we are here to help you navigate the transition.
