The GPSC’s Graduate Orientation will help you make the transition to our university as well as to graduate school. I strongly encourage you to attend the GPSC Graduate Orientation in addition to the ones at various schools and colleges. Our information session will include: financial aid and external funding resources, mentoring opportunities, how to cope with stress, library resources, campus health services and student health insurance, time management, and career services for graduate students. On top of campus resources, we will also be able to provide information about living in Tucson and ways to get involved with your university community among many other things. Free lunch, prize drawings, and an information fair featuring local businesses and U of A organizations will wrap up the day.
