Graduate Student Orientation

We are delighted to have you join the Clark University community as a new student this Fall! As you are preparing to come to Clark, we encourage you to reference this page as new information may be added prior to your arrival.

Please join our Facebook group for incoming graduate students. This is a closed group for admitted students only, so you will have to request to join.  An administrator will verify that you have been admitted and add you to the group within 48 hours.

Peer Advisers

Graduate Orientation Peer Advisers are a group of our current graduate students who have offered their time and knowledge to help our new students adjust to life at Clark both before and after their arrival. The following is a list of Peer Advisers who have offered to assist students prior to Orientation via email. If you have questions that you would like to ask one of our Peer Advisers, please reach out to them via email. Due to summer vacations and travel schedules, please allow at least 48 hours for a response.
