The Graduate School provides several opportunities for prospective students to meet with faculty and staff to learn how Hood’s graduate programs prepare students to go further in their lives, in their careers and in their communities. Once enrolled, new students are invited to orientations that introduce them to the campus, student amenities and faculty.
The Graduate School staff is available to meet with individuals to discuss educational plans and options. Schedule an appointment or email us at GoFurther@Hood.edu. The Graduate School is located on the 3rd floor of the Apple Resource Center, which is adjacent to the Whitaker Campus Center. You can view the campus map to locate these lots. Appointments are available on most days from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm.

Visitors who are on campus for an open house or an appointment and plan to park in one of these lots, should print out the visitor parking pass and display it in their front windshield. You can view the campus map to locate these lots.
