Each term the GSA welcomes graduate students by offering orientation programming where new and returning students can get the chance to meet members of their community and learn about the many services offered for their benefit and enjoyment.

Fall Orientation Information Fair

Graduate students attended Dinwoodie Lounge in SUB on Thursday, August 31, 2023 from 10AM-1PM for the Fall Orientation Information Fair.

We had coffee and pastries, grad students could talk to their elected leaders, learn about the GSA and other key services available to them, and met other graduate students. 

Thank you to our vendors here.


Graduate students can enroll in the Graduate Student Orientation eClass for more in-depth information about the GSA and other important University of Alberta services. 

Complete all the modules by September 30, 2023 to be entered into a draw for an iPad!
