GA orientation provides solid foundation for future professors

The Division of Graduate Studies hosts an orientation program designed to supplement department or program-level orientations. Kent State University's Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) is held prior to the start of fall and spring semesters and all new graduate students are encouraged to attend. GSO provides an opportunity to meet and network with other new graduate students, along with representatives of KSU's faculty, staff, and administration to learn about university and community resources. The first day of GSO is a general program that is open to all new graduate students. The second day of GSO is focused on teaching and is mandatory for new teaching assistants, including returning KSU graduate students with new teaching assistantships. All graduate students interested in college teaching are invited to attend Day 2 of GSO.
