The Graduate School and The Graduate student Association designate a week in the Fall and Spring semester to celebrate MSU’s graduate students and offer development opportunities designed for graduate students.
Past events include professional development workshops, fitness classes, mental health workshops, virtual trivia night, free professional headshots, free food events and social events to meet fellow graduate students.
Graduate Student Welcome Week
The Graduate Student Association and the Graduate School host the Graduate Student Welcome Week each fall to welcome students back to campus for the new academic year. Throughout the week, students are encouraged to engage in a host of events. All activities are focused on connecting graduate students to MSU in a way that helps them to identify and access the many resources provided to create a healthy and exciting atmosphere where they can successfully reach their academic goals.
The 2023 Graduate Student Welcome Week will be celebrated September 17 - 23!
