New Graduate Student Orientation 2019

Campus Center, site of NGSO 2019

The New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO) is a free, half-day event for incoming graduate students to the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa (UHM). Attending NGSO will be a great opportunity for you to meet peers from different fields, begin creating long-lasting connections, and learn about services and organizations on campus.
Orientation is designed to complement department-specific orientations and Teaching Assistant orientation by providing general information any graduate student should know regardless of their department, degree program, or assistantship. Workshop topics will range from finding funding opportunities, tips for writing at the graduate level, developing skills to foster good relationships with faculty mentors, and much more.
