Graduate Students

UArts Student Life wants to ensure that all graduate students become acclimated to the University.  To that end, we have highlighted several sessions during New Student Orientation that are graduate student friendly.  These dates and times are below.

Additionally, we will be hosting a special session for new graduate students on Thursday, August 21, 2014, starting at 1:00 pm in Arts Bank at the corner of Broad and South Streets, followed by a mixer for all graduate students at Estia Resturant.  The list of graduate student friendly sessions are listed below.
