Welcome Event Changes

The Graduate School's new student welcome event will be held on Sunday, August 20, 4-7 PM. This is a change from previous years. The event was previously held on the Monday before the start of classes. The change affords more flexibility to graduate programs that would like to schedule events on that Monday. More details will be provided as they become available.
