CCT Fall 2017 Orientation

CCT’s Orientation Day for new students will take place on Monday, August 28. Orientation is mandatory as this is the best time to meet the people who will be a big part of your grad student life. Additional materials are provided below to help you navigate your new environment.

First, prepare for Orientation by bringing at least TWO items:

  1. ONE question that you would like to explore academically at CCT. Make the question reasonably specific. For example:   “How are new communication technologies changing beekeeping communities?” Rather than: “What are the new communication technologies?”
  2. Questions you would like answered in the Academics Q&A and Student Initiatives Q&A.

All sessions will be in the Healey Family Student Center, Social Room, except for the CCT Tour.
