The director, international peers, faculty and university service unit representatives, (i.e. Housing, Health Insurance, Health Services, Center for Teaching and Learning, Library, etc.) provide information and guidance to facilitate a smooth transition for new international students to the campus and community. Information is provided on academic, financial, personal, social, institutional, cross-cultural and governmental issues.
