Graduate Student Orientation - Spring 2014

USF Tampa Campus – School of Music Concert Hall
Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Graduate students now represent 25% of the student body at USF. Although you will spend most of your time in the confines of your department, we hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to learn about the resources and service the University and the Office of Graduate Studies make available to support your education and professional development.

This orientation program is sponsored by the Office Graduate Studies for all new graduate students. You will be introduced to a wide range of offices, organizations, and service that are here for you. You will hear from faculty, staff and current students who will share information and advice to ease your transition and enrich your experience at USF.

Many graduate programs also schedule (and some require attendance at) departmental orientations that focus on your academic program and department/college resources, and we encourage you to attend yours. Contact your program director for details.
