Gradventure for prospective grad students

Your Gradventure awaits

Once you visit our campus nestled at the base of the Sierra Nevada mountains, we know you'll be ready for more. You'll meet our distinguished faculty and discuss the cutting-edge research being done in our facilities. Connect with those who share your passion as you chat with current students in the program. Then, we'll introduce you to your new happy places — like Lake Tahoe's trails and beaches, the Midtown food and art scene, and the stretches of freeway that beckon for your next road trip.

Some of our programs are also offering completely virtual Gradventure experiences to interested applicants who are not able to come in person. Find your program of interest to see what options are available.

Virtual Gradventure option

In addition to attending scheduled events and one-on-one meetings on Zoom, participants in our Virtual Gradventure program will be mailed a headset adapter for smartphones to watch the following video in virtual reality. Anyone can open this video in fullscreen on a phone or mobile device to see our campus in high-definition and 360-degrees. On a computer, you can also use your mouse to pan around and explore.
