Graduate StudentsChallenge the Possible

Unique grad-only resources, experiences, and opportunities have been designed with you in mind—to guide you from your first time on campus to receiving your master’s degree and beyond.

Graduate Students


Get adjusted to grad student life when you stop by the New Grad Student Welcome (hosted by SAA) on Sunday, September 18, 2022 from 3–5:00 p.m. It’s the perfect opportunity to meet other students, enjoy plentiful snacks and lay the foundation for your year ahead. You'll receive an email from the Graduate Life Office with more details the summer before the academic year begins. You can also look for SAA’s table at GOALIE (Graduate Orientation And Lunch Information Event) on Friday, September 23, 2022, beginning at 11:30 a.m.. We’ll be distributing complimentary Nerd Nation swag while supplies last.

On-Campus Community Building

Keeping your grad family close is essential, and SAA is here to help. In partnership with the Graduate Life Office, SAA supports graduate community-building efforts across campus.

Grad Commencement Celebration

Join your classmates for an evening under the stars as you sample delectable food and beverages on Wednesday, June 14, 2023. This complimentary event is open to graduating grad students who are eligible to participate in June Commencement.
