Fall Orientation 2020

The Office of Student Services at the Nicholas School of the Environment leads the fall orientation for graduate students, and we look forward to welcoming you. Orientation is your opportunity to build community within the first-year cohort, make connections with the returning students, and establish relationships with faculty advisors and staff administrators. 


This year, orientation will consist of a mixture of virtual asynchronous and synchronous sessions, and optional in-person opportunities.  

  • Summer Orientation Module, July 8 – August 7: A weekly schedule of virtual asynchronous and synchronous sessions, plus links to relevant and timely information, to help you get ready for the start of the school year. 
  • Campus Orientation Module, August 10 – August 14. Schedule available soon.
