Graduate Student Orientation

Each year the department of Physics and Astronomy coordinates a ‘Graduate Student Orientation’ designed to do two things:

1. Introduce new grad students in our department to the ‘rules of the road’
2. Provide a forum for the (old/new) grad students and faculty to meet, and get to know.

This year’s graduate orientation is occurring on Wednesday, 12 September 2012, beginning at 11am in PSE 317.
