Graduate Student Orientation is an opportunity for new and current students to visit with one another, meet with various campus resource offices on campus available to graduate students, and officially "kick-off" your graduate education at Potsdam.
What Orientation is: Information you have reviewed during the onboarding site was specifically designed to help you understand the tools, procedures and steps necessary to begin your graduate education at Potsdam. Orientation is specifically designed to introduce you into the Potsdam community, network with classmates, faculty/staff, and all things related to beginning your graduate journey.
What Orientation is NOT: Orientation is not a repeat of the information you reviewed in onboarding, or information you learned if you were an undergraduate at Potsdam. All students are strongly encouraged to make plans to attend orientation for the reasons mentioned above. Don't miss out on great networking opportunities! Make the most of your graduate student experience and differentiate yourself on campus.
