New Graduate and Professional Student Orientation 2013
thursday, august 29, 2013
Congratulations on your acceptance to Boston College! The Office of Graduate Student Life, the Office of the Provost, University Libraries, and the Graduate Student Association look forward to welcoming you to Boston College and to the Boston area during our "New Graduate and Professional Student Orientation" Program
The 2013 Orientation program will be on
Thursday, August 29th, 2013
*Additional information about orientation will be provided shortly. Please continue checking the website for further updates
As a new graduate or professional student, you join a community of scholars that comprises one third of the entire student population at Boston College. The purpose of our orientation program is to introduce you to your new community, which includes nearly 5,000 graduate and professional students studying in 8 schools, and to familiarize you with a broad range of University resources and orient you to the greater Boston area. This program is meant to serve as a complement to (not a substitute for) your school/department-based orientation programs.
To that end, the New Graduate and Professional Student Orientation program includes a variety of activities, ranging from informational sessions to social events, during which you will have an opportunity to meet new and returning graduate students, and to connect with BC administrators and staff throughout the university who are here to support your student learning.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 617-552-1855 with any questions.
If you are a current graduate student and interested in volunteering for orientation please email Tara Bartley at email@example.com for more information.
During Orientation, please tweet your thoughts and connect with everyone you meet that day!: #bcNGPSO
