Our International Student Orientation program will fully prepare you to be a successful student at PSU! This mandatory program for all new PSU int’l and exchange students establishes a foundation for success. Comprehensive in nature, it follows the best practices in international education, combining University information sessions with US government mandated immigration information, exposure and introduction to the surrounding community, cross-cultural training, opportunity to get settled (ex: shopping for dorm living, opening bank accounts, purchasing cell phones) and meeting new friends. The Orientation team is comprised of University staff and an amazing group of student leaders. We guarantee by the first day of classes you will be well-informed about student life at Plymouth State, and will have had many opportunities to meet and make new friends, have fun and be ready to start your academic career here!
The Fall (August) 2016 Orientation Schedule will be posted here when it is completed. Our tentative arrival date is Tuesday, August 23, 2016. You will be busy from the time you arrive through to the first day of classes (August 29, 2016) ! Don’t worry: you’ll have time to go shopping, get a cell phone, open a bank account, get settled in your on-campus room, get your classes organized, and start making new friends!
