Orientation Activities

We use the phrase "Orientation Over Time" to describe our approach to welcoming new students to our community. We see orientation as a series of activities and resources designed to prepare you for the beginning of your first term at Wagner and to help you get the best possible start to your graduate school journey.

Some of the early activities take place online, but the most intensive mandatory ones take place in New York during the two weeks before the first day of class.  You should be available for these in-person events as of August 16, 2017.
