Spring 2018 Orientation for New and Returning Graduate Students/GTAs/GRAs

All Orientation schedules times and locations are subject to change

The Department of Statistics welcomes our new and returning graduate students to Kansas State University for the Spring 2018 semester.  

 Throughout the week of January 8-12, 2018, a variety of welcome and orientation activities are scheduled for NEW and CURRENT graduate students prior to the start of the spring semester on Tuesday, January 16, 2018. Some sessions are required for new students and students with teaching responsibilities. Please review the sessions to determine which sessions you are required to attend or you would like to attend and register for applicable sessions, at the  following link:  http://www.k-state.edu/grad/admissions/campus-orientation/spring.html   

Advance registration is requested for many of the sessions and activities sponsored by the Graduate School and International Students and Scholarship Services. Registration will open in the first week of December

It is very important for all new international students to check in with International Student and Scholar Services (104 International Student Center) and the Graduate School (119 Eisenhower Hall) upon their arrival to K-State.  Review  the International Student Scholar Services (ISSS) website for detailed and valuable information about check-in procedures, required orientation sessions and other welcome and orientation activities for international students:  http://www.k-state.edu/isss/orientation/index.html

We recommend scheduling a campus tour either before or during the week of orientation at a time when your attendance is not required at other orientation activities.  Graduate Student Ambassadors provide year-round walking tours of the K-State Manhattan campus that highlights areas of interest to graduate students. Learn more about campus tours for graduate students, and make an appointment at the following webpage link:
