Before the beginning of the fall and spring terms, the Graduate Council holds a general orientation session that aims to build community and provide information of particular interest to graduate students.

The program is highly informative even for former AUB students as it features new services available at AUB, research related opportunities and initiatives, and graduate related activities. 
The reception that follows the orientation session provides an opportunity to connect with new graduate colleagues and to interact with key graduate service providers. 

Overall, orientation helps new graduate students integrate more smoothly into the AUB graduate experience.
