What is the Live Virtual Welcome Event?


The Live Virtual Welcome Event is the second part of the graduate student orientation experience. We offer it several dates/times, so register for the one that best fits your schedule. 

The Live Virtual Welcome Event lasts approximately 2 hours. During that time, you will:

  • Submit any last minute question you may may and have them answered by our knowledgeable staff
  • Watch real-time brief introductions from the various functional areas
  • Test all your technology (microphones, etc.) 
  • Learn how to use Canvas for your classes
  • Learn how to virtually attend your class on the first day





How do I register for the Live Virtual Welcome Event?

You will receive an email from GradStudentServices@HarrisburgU.edu 1-2 months before the semester begins and after you pay your deposit. That email will contain the days/times being offered, and links to register. Alternatively, there is module in your Online Orientation Course that will also walk you through the process of registration.
