Welcome New Grad Students!

Welcome new graduate students! The MetoGrads group offers a warm welcome to all of you. We know that your first year here as a grad student can be its hardest, and we want you to know that all of the current grad students are here for you to make your transition as smooth as possible. Also, we want this website to be the go to place for any information that might be relevant to your life as a grad student in our department.  It is still under construction: so if there is anything you can think of that would be helpful to you that isn’t here, please don’t hesitate to let us know. Again, welcome, and hope you have a great first semester here!
