An orientation for new and current Pitt graduate and professional students will be held from 2-5 p.m. Aug. 23 in David Lawrence Hall.

An evening reception will follow from 5-8 p.m. at Schenley Plaza. Both events are sponsored by Pitt’s Graduate and Professional Student Government (GPSG). 

Kenyon Bonner, Pitt vice provost and dean of students, and Alberta Sbragia, vice provost for graduate students, will welcome students, and there will be several breakout sessions on healthy living at Pitt, Title IX, and a panel discussion with student resource groups. A resource fair featuring more than 35 University partners will be held in the David Lawrence Hall lobby.

The GPSG represents the nearly 10,000 graduate and professional students on Pitt’s campus.

“We’re members of a huge student body, and we want to engage as a whole,” says GPSG President Justin Saver, a graduate student in the University’s School of Pharmacy.
