  • This event has passed.

Congratulations on your acceptance into Cornell…and welcome!  We are excited that you will begin your graduate program soon and look forward to working with you. 

Our goal is simple: To give you a warm welcome and help you become a member of Cornell communities of scholars and researchers. You will learn about graduate study at Cornell along with expectations and tips for success as a new graduate student. We will introduce you to available resources and support to help you now and during your degree program.

The formal program, presented via Zoom, features Cornell President Martha Pollack, Graduate School Dean Barbara A. Knuth, the Graduate and Professional Student Assembly, and the Graduate School’s associate and assistant deans who will help you understand Cornell’s structure, funding, and much more.

Our orientation does not replace your field orientation program; it supplements it to help you experience the benefits of a larger, interdisciplinary community. Please consult your field’s website for field, college, and program-specific orientation programs.
