Empty coffee shopIt was quiet in the coffee shop this morning.  With Convocation last week, most of our students are either beginning their post-graduate life or on summer break.

The quiet won’t last for long!

The first of our Summer Institutes begins next week as does the first in a series of new student orientations!

Orientation registration in the GalleryIt’s hard to believe, but New MPH Student Orientation (for full-time students) is less than two months away!

Are you ready?

Are you sure?

We have a way for you tell.

On the Admitted Student Website (login required)*, under , you’ll find a checklist of activities you can complete before coming to campus. We’ve also included a few “save the dates,” a second checklist of tasks you’ll complete during Orientation and an Orientation FAQ.

Check it out, check tasks off and check in with us July 1!
