UC Berkeley’s New Graduate Student Orientation (NGSO) is an additional orientation designed to supplement orientations that are held by your department, school, or program. NGSO takes place virtually from August 16-18, 2022 from 1-4 p.m. consisting of a series of virtual workshops, and in-person events on August 23. We’re partnering with offices and organizations all over campus (for example: the libraries, Basic Needs Center, University Health Services, the Office for Graduate Diversity) to help provide information to ease your transition into graduate school, introduce you to campus services and opportunities to get involved, and help you get connected with graduate student communities.
