Each fall, two orientations are held prior to the start of classes that students are encouraged to attend. The New Graduate Student Orientation is an orientation designed to help graduate students new to UT get information on a variety of topics to help them get situated. The New Graduate Teaching Assistant/Associate Orientation is for graduate students who will be teaching assistants or associates for the first time. This orientation includes information on teaching practices and working with students.
For fall 2017, the dates and locations for the orientations are the following:
- New Graduate Student Orientation—Tuesday, August 8, 8:00 a.m.–1:00 p.m. at the Holiday Inn Knoxville Downtown
- New Graduate Teaching Assistant/Associate Orientation—Thursday, August 10, 8:00 a.m.–11:00 a.m. at the Crown Plaza Knoxville
We will be sending out messages explaining how to RSVP for the orientation, which we encourage, as it helps us plan.
