Each fall semester, the Department welcomes all new graduate students and all returning graduate students to the new academic year. This year, the Graduate Student Day and Orientation Conference was delayed one month because of Hurricane Ivan. The event took place at Tickfaw State Park on Saturday, October 23.

We started with a breakfast at the Pine/Hardwood Pavilion.
