Registration for GSO

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.

GSO Week, which includes programming offered by your department and by the Graduate College, is August 24 - 28, 2020.  

Registering now will allow you to gain access to online content when it becomes available on August 1, 2020.  Additionally, we will inform you of on-campus professional development workshops offered by the Graduate College tentatively scheduled for Tuesday, August 25, at 2:30 PM.

All incoming graduate students (summer and fall) and first-time assistants need to register for GSO.
