Together@Dal: Grad Edition


Each semester, the Faculty of Graduate Studies welcomes new students joining us from locations locally, nationally and around the world. To bring us all together we’ve created the Together@Dal: Grad Edition (T@DGE) orientation program.

During T@DGE, you’ll explore a series of online modules released weekly. We’ll introduce you to resources available to you at the university and equip you to start your degree.

The summer edition of T@DGE launched on August 9 - if you're an incoming graduate student, check your Dalhousie email for instructions on how to access the program. If you don't appear to have access to the Together@Dal: Grad Edition Brightspace course, email us at with your full name, Net ID and B00 number.

The four T@DGE modules are:

Module Description Release date
What the Dal? Find out how to get involved in the Dalhousie community and discover the academic resources available to help you succeed. August 9
Thriving in Graduate School Learn how to stay motivated, resilient and confident when starting your program online. August 16
Relationship Building Nobody makes it through graduate school alone. Discover the importance of making social connections and identify tips to stay in touch virtually with your peers, professors and departmental staff. August 23
Creating a Graduate Student Game Plan Develop strategies to kick-start your graduate studies and build your skills through professional development. August 30

When you complete the reflection activities at the end of each of the four modules, the Together@Dal: Grad Edition program can be added to your Co-Curricular Record, a document that records your extra-curricular and volunteer activities. The four modules will remain available to review until Friday, September 17 at midnight.
