New Graduate Student Orientation

NGSO 2020: August 30-September 11

Welcome to Stanford! The Graduate Life Office hosts New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO) every year in hopes to orient Stanford's new graduate students and ease their transition onto campus. NGSO is open to all incoming graduate students, both new and transfer students. Our goal is to inform and connect new graduate students to the Graduate Life Office and other useful campus resources. Through NGSO, we hope to help students build their toolboxes for a successful graduate career here at Stanford University.

More information on NGSO 2020 is forthcoming. Please check back for updates.
