At a Glance: Fall Programs and Events for International Students and Scholars
by Jason Marquart, Team Leader
As we welcome back our international students and scholars and welcome those who have joined the Washington University community this semester, we would like to let everyone know that we will again offer a host of programs and events that might interest you.
Our Fall 2017 schedule includes a variety of events — from workshops on American culture and career development to off-campus day-trips to off-campus locations.
Highlights of our programming include discussions on practical issues such as: how to purchase, license and insure a motor vehicle; how to use your health insurance; and how to stay safe off campus. You will also find ways to explore American culture through events such as Baseball 101 and Pumpkin Carving just to name a few.
For those who wish to get off campus, you should watch for our 3rd annual Voices of Valhalla trip and our 8th annual Fall Break Bike Trip.
The Office for International Students and Scholars will again host sessions related to working off campus, including our OPT workshops. Moreover, we will again offer Working 101, which will focus on CPT, OPT and other international student work benefits, while Working 102 will include a big-picture discussion of work visas such as the J-1, H-1B and Permanent Residency.
You can find out more about our events and programs by viewing our event calendar at: http://oiss.wustl.edu. You will also be notified when our programs open for registration through e-mail alerts.
