The department of Plant Pathology and the Russell Labs Administrative Hub will provide a number orientation events that are strongly recommended for all new students.  Students who are unable to attend must notify Sara ( by August 15th.  At this time we are still working on the specifics of the events given a number of new staff in the Russell Labs Administrative Hub, however, we anticipate holding these events the week of August 25th.  More information will be sent via email as specific dates are selected.  Typically in Plant Pathology the orientation events include rotation lab presentations, general programmatic and campus information, and assistantship and benefits information.

Students who begin their funding in Summer 2014 need to contact Lance Potter (608-263-4520) to set up their benefits when they arrive.
