An International Welcome - Hofstra Style

For the past couple of weeks, the Hofstra Community has greeted more than 60 new international students who arrived to start their studies at Hofstra next week.

The Multicultural and International Student Programs Office (MISPO) partnered with various departments across campus to put together a comprehensive orientation program for the students.

Topics included instructions on how to maintain their immigration status, how to stay safe and well, cultural adjustment, resources for academic success and tips on keeping the integrity of academic work. Students also had the opportunity to go on a shopping trip to get needed supplies, make friends at the International Mixer, and learn some traditional U.S. games at a game night.

The international orientation does not end with this week. A Living in America series and an International Q&A series will continue to provide students with information to aid the new international students with their intercultural journey at Hofstra. For more information: 

Thank you to the volunteers, administrators, and staff who made this week possible!
