GSAS New Student Orientation

Welcome to Fordham’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (GSAS)! We are so pleased you will be joining us as an incoming graduate student in August.

Graduate student orientations will be held virtually on Thursday, August 20, 2020 and Friday, August 21, 2020. You will receive additional information about how to join the orientation events, which will be available asynchronously via the learning platform Blackboard, and synchronously, via Zoom. While live, synchronous events will be held on Thursday and Friday, the programs will be identical, so you only have to attend one based on your preferred time. Additional information, including a full program schedule and invitation to register, is forthcoming.

Orientation will provide you with the information and resources you need to get your year off to a great start, and to aid you as you begin your graduate program. Sessions will cover a variety of topics, including wellness, professional development, and information about Fordham's graduate community and culture. Please mark your calendars!
