Representatives from Northwestern University's International Office (IO) travel to various locations throughout the world each year to meet with newly admitted international students. This year, representatives will be in South Korea, China, and India to host newly admitted international students for a pre-departure orientation. All academic programs and all admitted students are welcome to attend. Parents and spouses/partners are also welcome! If you intend to bring a parent/spouse, please have them register for a ticket separately using your academic program information.

At each orientation, representatives from The International Office (IO) will provide you with an overview of Northwestern University and the IO, Evanston & Chicago, and provide additional information on various topics as you prepare to leave home and head to campus. Topics covered may include: what to pack, getting to campus from the airport, course registration and tuition payments, on-campus orientations, health services and health insurance, adjusting to US academic culture, and much more.

This session will also provide you an opportunity to meet your fellow students as well as local alumni and university representatives! Registration and location details will become available in early 2018. For planning purposes, last year's dates are listed below.
