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 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.

There will be an opportunity to explore the campus and the surrounding community.  It is importnat that all new international students will make every effort to arrive early enough to take part in this program.
