Experience Gillings 2019: A Program for Admitted Graduate Students

What is Experience Gillings?

Each spring, the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health hosts an all-day program (8 a.m. – 3 p.m.) for applicants who have been admitted as graduate students for the following fall. Admitted students can connect directly with current students and members of the School’s faculty and staff. We hope to offer a first-hand understanding of what the Gillings School provides: not only a world-renowned public health education, but a diverse and collaborative community unlike any other.

Bring your questions about student life at Carolina, research opportunities, financial aid and life in Chapel Hill.  We’re also happy to offer information about off-campus student life.

Those who participate in Experience Gillings are asked to make their own arrangements for transportation and lodging. We’ll provide breakfast, lunch and refreshments at the student meet-and-greet.
