Graduate Student Orientation

Bowling Green State University's Graduate Student Orientation (GSO) program is designed to acclimate new graduate students to campus resources in order to foster community engagement and ensure student success. GSO provides initial professional development for students to ensure compliance with institutional policies as well as a successful start to their academic career. We will offer the orientation experience both virtually and through on-campus experiences.  All new graduate students are encouraged to participate in GSO.

Fall 2020 Virtual GSO

Virtual GSO will be available to all new summer and fall 2020 graduate students starting Aug. 1.  New graduate students are asked to complete the virtual orientation experience prior to the start of the fall semester.  Students will receive notification when their Virtual GSO experience is available.
