Fall 2020 Graduate Student Orientation Schedule

 GSO Live Sessions with Campus Resources

In early August, we anticipate having our asynchronous Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) module available to all new graduate students and teaching assistants. The module will be hosted within Blackboard Learn and students registered for GSO will be enrolled in the course. We will offer live socials on the dates of GSO, which are August 20 (for all new graduate students) and August 21 (for all new teaching assistants. The schedule for those live sessions on the dates of GSO, will be announced later this summer.

Before the GSO dates of August 20-21 and the asynchronous GSO module is available, we are hosting a number of sessions throughout July and August for you to learn more about important resources and services for graduate students, while asking our presenters your questions. These GSO Live sessions will be held via Blackboard and all students registered for GSO by July 1 will be automatically enrolled into the course. If you register for GSO after July 1 or have not registered yet, please send Kyle Reynolds a message at kreynol3@kent.edu at least 24 hours before the GSO live session you wish to attend and he can add you to the course.

GSO Live sessions will be recorded for those unable to attend the session to review at a later time. Webcam capability will be disabled for attending students, but students will be able to ask their questions for our presenters during the session. Please note that by joining a GSO Live session you are acknowledging that the session you are in will be recorded.
