GradCat Kickoff 2024

A few days before the start of Fall term, the Graduate School will host a GradCat Kickoff, consisting a welcome from Dean Ogilvie, a student panel, and a well-being activity. This is a wonderful way to get started on your graduate journey, start networking, and learn about how to move through your graduate journey.
Please watch for dates/times in the coming months!
Refreshments will be provided.
