On January 12th, new Cleveland State University graduate students headed to class a few days early! Joining in the College of Graduate Studies New Student Orientation, attendees filled the Student Center Atrium to connect with more than 30 campus and community representatives and become better acquainted with the City of Cleveland, Young Professionals Organizations, and with our University. Interim Dean of the College of Graduate Studies, Dr. Donna Schultheiss, kicked off the formal presentations and welcomed new master and doctoral students, many of whom were visiting campus for the first time. Students adjourned to a formal session covering nearly a dozen topics related to student success and University resources. The evening activities were capped with a lively student panel discussion hosted by the Graduate Student Association officers and members: Erica Henkin, Alexander Roth, Zachary Pichler and Malek Khawam.
Graduate Student Orientation is offered to all incoming students in Fall and Spring Semester. In a recent program evaluation, 100% of respondents agreed or strongly agreed that the Graduate Student Orientation helped them develop a better understanding of CSU resources and services.
