We are excited to have you join the ME family and look forward to helping you succeed inside and outside the classroom.  We know Grad School presents its own challenges, so we’re excited to see things opening back up to return to ‘normal’ on campus this fall.  We know our students are strong and will continue to meet whatever challenges are ahead, but we want you to know that you are not alone as you pursue your advanced degree, and we are here to help, however we can.

We want to give you the best welcome-to-campus experience we can, including in-person orientation.  We’ll have information galore for you, and attending the 2 hour in-person orientation will satisfy your in-field RCR requirement!  The in-person experience is for our students who are attending on-campus courses this fall.  We’ll be following this up with a virtual experience on Thursday, open to all of our incoming students, to give you even more details and resources, and be available to answer any questions you may have.

Please see important information and resources to the right (all links, will be active after orientation).  Get ready to join us and get your first semester off to a great start!
