PLEASE NOTE: Fall Orientation starts on Thursday, August
20, 2015 and all international students should plan to arrive for
Move In Day on Tuesday (August 18, 2015) or if you live off-campus,
on Wednesday (August 19, 2015).
There will be a special orientation session for
international students beginning at 9 a.m. Wednesday, August 19,
International Student Orientation begins prior to Freshman,
Transfer and/or Graduate Orientation and is required for all
international students. The purpose of orientation is to help you
make the transition to University life in the United States.
Academic, cultural and immigration issues are discussed in detail.
In addition, social activities such as time with your Orientation
Leaders, dinner with student leaders on-campus, and a shopping trip
are among the things that are planned.
This orientation dovetails into the New Student Orientation
activities so that once the international students have gotten to
know one another, they are also able to get to know other new U.S.
students during the regular orientation.
