Each spring, the Gillings School of Global Public Health hosts a day-long program for newly admitted applicants. Admitted graduate students have the opportunity to connect with current students, faculty, and staff to discuss student life at UNC, research, financial aid, and life in Chapel Hill, in order to learn why UNC is a great match for a public health education. 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.
