Graduate School Events
Throughout the academic year, representatives from a wide variety of graduate school admissions officers visit campus to conduct information sessions to inform students about their graduate and law school degree programs. This is a great way for students to meet graduate school admissions officers and for admissions officers to recruit Oxy students.
Career Services also hosts various panels of alumni who provide insight into their career path, graduate school choices, application process, and success tips.
USC Graduate School Fair
Oxy students are invited to attend the Graduate School Fair at USC held every year in the fall on the campus of University of Southern California. Over 130 graduate schools attend including Columbia University, Duke University, NYU, UPenn, UC Berkeley, UCLA, and USC. By attending this event, Oxy students have the opportunity to discover a broad range of graduate school options.
The Graduate School Fair at USC is announced to students as soon as Career Services receives the invitation from USC. Oxy students who attend the Graduate School Fair at USC are required to RSVP and must bring their Oxy student identification to the event for free admission.
