About Us

We aim to help graduate students flourish at Stanford through programming that addresses the multifaceted issues of the graduate experience. Through programs like New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO), Grad 201s, and GLO Study Breaks, we connect students to important campus resources and empower them to thrive as members of the Stanford community.

  • Grad 201s - As an extension of NGSO, Grad 201s are workshops and seminars designed to help students expand upon or re-familiarize themselves with topics explored during orientation.
