Logo of Graduate Fair

Monday, March 1 through Friday, March 5, 2021

 

MSU Graduate School is excited to host a Virtual Graduate Fair for all interested students.  This free and virtual event is taking place over the entire week of March 1-5, 2021. The fair will feature most of the graduate programs at MSU in individualized, live, WebEx Meeting rooms.  

Each event is a live WebEx of faculty and staff representing that particular field. You will be listening to their research and have opportunities to engage in the discussion and ask questions. The platform is one that most of you have navigated for courses which shifted to online instruction, so you should be familiar with the chat and breakout room options.

You can see the schedule below where you will sign up for each event you want to attend. Remember, these are not pre-recorded sessions; so get onto the WebEx at quickly at the start to not miss anything. Each session will be 50 minutes in length, allowing you time between each session (if you are signing up for back to back events).

Additionally, please note that we have both a special session for International students, as well as a unique General Session geared to general Graduate School questions, such as how to write a statement of purpose, securing the best reference writers, or asking questions about residency or financial aid. Dean Ogilvie and the entire admissions staff will be ready to help answer all questions during this session.
