GSA Grad Orientation 2022

Every semester, GSA welcomes all new and returning graduate students with a series of orientation events and fun activities

It’s a chance to meet some new friends, get involved in activities, meet the GSA Staff and the Board and Representative Council members that advocate for you and issues affecting students at the University.

In Semester 1, 2022, our Orientation program attracted over 1000 students in attendance at events and we delivered 35 different events.

We’re excited to announce our Semester 2 Orientation program, bigger and better than ever!
