Orientation

 

Welcome to Together@Dal: Grad Edition

Fall 2020 will be a semester like none before. The Faculty of Graduate Studies will welcome approximately 1,000 students, most of whom will be studying online, and many from locations around the world. To bring us all together we’ve created Together@Dal: Grad Edition. The program will share the resources available to you at the university, help equip you to start your degree online and create a community of graduate student peers.

By registering for Together@Dal: Grad Edition, you’ll be invited to enter a contest for a chance to win awesome prizes, including a MacBook computer and a $500 Visa gift card. See full contest rules [PDF - 13 kB]

Between the beginning of August and mid-September, you’ll be introduced to our Grad Student Mentors who will help lead you through a series of online modules.

What to expect

Together@Dal module Description
What the Dal?

Find out how to get involved in the Dalhousie community and discover the academic resources available to help you succeed.

Thriving in Graduate School Learn how to stay motivated, resilient and confident when starting your program online.
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.
Creating a Graduate Student Game Plan Develop strategies to kick-start your graduate studies and build your skills through professional development.

At the end of each module, you’ll have the opportunity to join your peers in virtual video #gradchat sessions led by our mentors. The sessions will be available at different times to accommodate people around the world. They will be a great chance to connect with fellow grad students and ask questions. You’ll also have access to discussion boards and more.

We’re looking forward to getting started and welcoming you to our community.  We are all in this Together@Dal!
