Local airport and bus terminal pickups can be arranged for Wednesday, August 20, 2014 between the hours of 8:30 am and 8:00 pm by contacting the International Affairs office at International@Marywood.edu at least two weeks before the semester begins. Students may NOT  arrive on campus before this date as many services will not be available, including dining.
