Graduate StudentsChallenge the Impossible

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


The Stanford Alumni Association (SAA) was thrilled to host the New Grad Student Orientation Welcome on Sunday, September 17, 2023 from 3:00 –5:00 p.m. It was the perfect opportunity to meet other students, enjoy plentiful snacks, and lay the foundation for your year ahead.  We also offered a demo about how to connect with the broader Stanford Alumni community using the Alumni Directory and Stanford Alumni Groups. Read further down for those resources. Later in the week, we met students at GOALIE (Graduate Orientation And Lunch Information Event) on Friday, September 22, 2023. We hope you've been enjoying your complimentary Nerd Nation swag bags.
