Experience Gillings: A Program For Admitted Graduate Students
Each spring, the Gillings School of Global Public Health hosts a day-long program for newly admitted applicants.

Applicants who chose to attend Experience Gillings must make their own arrangements for transportation and lodging. Breakfast will be provided as well as light refreshments at the student Meet and Greet.
