About Us

Main content start

We aim to help graduate students flourish at Stanford through holistic 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.

Our Programs

  • NGSO - A full week of events to welcome all incoming first-year grads. Get connected with important campus resources, make new friends, and learn all about the graduate community and the people who support them.
  • 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.
