Carnegie Mellon University

Spring 2018 University-wide Graduate Student Orientation

WHAT: This Orientation will provide you with an opportunity to learn about University level services, programs and resources beyond your department. It is your chance to meet administrators and student leaders who are focused on the graduate student experience at Carnegie Mellon. We have created the program for this orientation so that it won't overlap too much with those departments and programs that hold their own Spring Orientations.

WHEN: Friday, January 12, 2018 from 12:30pm-5pm

WHERE: Cohon University Center - SEE SCHEDULE BELOW (campus map)

REGISTER: Please confirm your participation by registering no later than Monday, January 8, 2018.

FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS: If you are an international student please note that this University-Wide Orientation follows the International Orientation that you are required to attend on Friday morning from 9:00 am to 12:30 pm.  Please visit the Office of International Education website for more information.

It is our hope that your travel to Carnegie Mellon goes smoothly and we look forward to meeting you on January 12, if not before. If you have any questions regarding Orientation please don't hesitate to contact us.
