Orientation - Together@Dal: Grad Edition

Get introduced to the Dalhousie community

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 orientation program.

During orientation, you’ll led be through a series of online modules by grad student mentors. We’ll introduce you to resources available to you at the university, equip you to start your degree online and introduce you to your community of graduate student peers. 

Meet your peers

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

Starting your graduate program in January 2022?

If you will be entering your Dalhousie graduate program in January 2022, you will receive an email in mid-December 2021 with more information about how to take part in the winter edition of Together@Dal: Grad Edition, which will begin on Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

The four Together@Dal: Grad Edition modules are:

Module 1: What the Dal? 
Find out how to get involved in the Dalhousie community and discover the campus resources available to help you succeed.

Module 2: Thriving in Graduate School
Learn how to stay motivated, resilient and confident when starting your program online.

Module 3: Relationship Building
Nobody makes it through graduate school alone. Discover the importance of making social connections and identify tips to stay in touch with your peers, professors, and departmental staff.

Module 4: Creating a Graduate Student Game Plan
Develop strategies to kick-start your graduate studies and build your skills through professional development.

Get recognized for your efforts

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.

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