Graduate Fair: Fall 2022
October 26-28 (Wednesday-Friday), 2022

MSU Graduate School Virtual Graduate Fairs are a great way to engage directly with faculty and graduate coordinators representing the particular field of interest to you. The free, virtual event typically features most of the graduate programs at MSU in individualized, live, WebEx Meeting rooms.  You will be listening to their research and have opportunities to engage in the discussion. The platform is one that most of you have navigated, but if not, please see this link to learn more tips on using WebEx (very similar to other platforms, such as Zoom). 

When registration opens, you will see a detailed schedule where you will sign up for each event you want to attend (no limit); but note: not all programs participate.

This is the list of participating programs: American Studies, Animal & Range Sciences, Architecture, Chemical & Biological Engineering, Chemistry/Biochemistry/Material Sciences, Computer Science, Earth Science, Electrical & Computer Engineering/Optics & Photonics, Ecology, English & English Education, Film & Photography, Graduate School (General Session), Health Sciences, Mathematical Sciences, Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, Microbiology & Cell Biology, Music Education, Native American Studies, Nursing, Physics, Science Education.

Remember, these are not pre-recorded sessions; so once the fair starts, it's important to attend the session on time. In the past, people attend from around the world, so please view the link below to verify the time zone. Each session will be 50 minutes in length, allowing you time between each session.

Additionally, please note that we have both 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.

We look forward to our next Virtual Graduate Recruitment Fair; we hope you can join! If you have questions, feel free to contact the Graduate School: [email protected]

Registration will open on September 28, 2022
