Global Spartan Welcome

Welcome to our #GlobalSpartan community!

In addition to the campus orientation program (Sparta Camp for first years, Spartan Experience for Transfers, or Graduate Student Welcome Conference), all new international students must attend a special Global Spartan Welcome program with International Student & Scholar Services (ISSS). The Global Spartan Welcome is designed just for international students, and covers immigration and cultural topics to help prepare you for your transition to university life in the U.S. 

There is no fee to attend Global Spartan Welcome.
