Graduate Orientation Week

Graduate Research Orientation Week (GROW) encompasses a number of workshops, programs and events held at the beginning of each academic year to provide new incoming students with an opportunity to take care of important pre-enrollment tasks and to learn about UC Merced and the Merced community.

GROW will have specific events geared toward incoming Natural Sciences graduate students which include: TA training, Lab safety training, and specific graduate group events. Resources for incoming Natural Sciences graduate students who will be joining the Applied Mathematics (AM), Chemistry & Chemical Biology (CCB), Physics (PHYI) and Quantitative & Systems Biology (QSB) graduate groups will be provided.

*All new students are expected to participate in GROW and the sessions/schedule are specific to Graduate Groups.
