Welcome New Students!

Welcome to our 400 new GMS students who will arrive on campus tomorrow, representing our 33 different masters and doctoral programs. Students come from 23 different countries, 41 different states and 188 different undergraduate institutions.

We are very excited to be using the Whova mobile app for the event, allowing new students to connect with each other. Following a GMS-wide orientation, students will participate in a BU-wide Resource Fair on the Talbot Green introducing you to the many services and student groups here in GMS and the MED campus as well as BU Charles River Campus.
