The University hosts the Graduate School’s Welcome Week and CEOAS hosts a college-specific Incoming Graduate Student Orientation. You will receive multiple emails regarding these events, and they are on separate timelines. The CEOAS Orientation is required. Please place the dates below on your calendar.
Most incoming students will be participating in a CEOAS field course and will not be able to attend these Graduate School events. Incoming Geology students not participating in any field course would be encouraged to participate in the Graduate School’s Welcome Week.

Please let us know when you are arriving in Corvallis.
If you are starting in summer for fieldwork or a cruise, please let us know ASAP.
It is recommended that you arrive in Corvallis by late August or early September in order to have time to get settled before it is time to begin student-related tasks, including pre-fall term field courses (see below!) There are some housekeeping activities that you can do before classes begin, and getting these out of the way will make for a less stressful startup.
CAGS is a graduate student led organization and they have information and resources that will be useful to you as you transition to Graduate School. Please take time to review their webpage. CAGS has a section on relocation, along with other topics like professional development and outreach.
There are a variety of ways to look for housing.You may also find the following web addresses helpful. You may also post an ad to the targeted listservs within CEOAS, contact Lori Hartline for those addresses.
These are assigned on a per-term basis by Robert Allan. In August you will receive an email containing the Fall GTA course schedule. You will be asked to provide your top 3 preferences. I will try to accommodate everyone’s requests but please understand this is not always possible. I’m hoping to have specific work assignments completed before September 1st.
If you are starting in the summer, between June 20th and September 15th, please notify Lori Hartline that this is the plan!
