Graduate School Exploration Week
Graduate School Exploration Week is a collaborative event between the Office of Graduate Studies and the Office of Admissions each fall that provides opportunities for students to learn about graduate education at SHSU. Learn about the graduate school application process, how to stand out from other applicants, and meet graduate advisors. Standing events include Grad 101, a GRE prep workshop, and a graduate program fair, to name a few.
