Multicultural Graduate Student Orientation

Multicultural Graduate Student Orientation (MGSO) is a half-day orientation on August 25th focused on community building for incoming graduate students on NC State’s campus. Through skill building workshops, interactive panels, and networking with peers, faculty and staff, the MGSO prepares students to successfully navigate graduate school in their first year. As well as balancing their commitments while honoring their identities in becoming resources and advocates for a diverse and inclusive campus community.

All incoming graduate students are invited to register, particularly students from communities that have been placed in the margin or historically underrepresented.
Multicultural Graduate Student Orientation (MGSO) is part of MSA’s initiative to include more resources and programming for graduate students.
