Advice to New Graduate Students

In this section, you’ll find some good advice on graduate school. Graduate school is quite different from what came before it, and so it is important for you to have the right expectations on what lies ahead. There is usually a lack of information about the academic side of the process.

So, here is a list of a few pointers (courtesy of Google):





Best of luck!

Teaching Assistant Orientation

(Sponsored by Educational Services for Students)

Campus-wide Teaching Assistant Orientation (including International Teaching Assistants)
Tuesday, August 19

Thwing Ballroom

8:30 am, Registration and light Breakfast
All UNIV 400 A and B students must report at 8:30. A continental breakfast will be served. Those students who have not yet officially registered for either UNIV 400 A or B will have an opportunity to complete a drop/add form at this orientation.
The orientation for both UNIV 400 A and B will run until 11:00 am. Then UNIV 400 A students will be dismissed. UNIV 400 B students will remain until 1:00pm for a special orientation.  A light lunch will be served. During this portion of the orientation, UNIV 400 B students will be asked to sign up for a time to take the SPEAK test, which is the

Spoken English test that all new international TA's are required to take.

If students do not pass the SPEAK test, they will be asked at this appointment to register for UNIV 400 C, which is a required, non- credit course that provides instruction on spoken English skills needed for the TA position.
The SPEAK test dates and times during orientation week are as follows:

Thursday, August 21, 3 pm through 7 pm

Friday, August 22, 2 pm through 5 pm
However, it is important to note that the SPEAK test is administered through scheduled appointments. Students who miss the orientation session should come to the SPEAK test location to schedule a time for the first week of classes.
