OISS International Student and Family Welcome

The OISS would like to welcome and and continue orienting our new international students and their families. 

OISS and other campus partners have organized a day to welcome you to Tulane University.  We will show you the uptown campus, provide orientation for your parents and families, as well as offer Success Workshops to allow you to meet other students and dig deeper into topics that will prepare you to have a safe and successful time at Tulane.  We will end the afternoon with a Connect Fest, to offer another change to meet people, but also on and off campus resources and a special Roommate Meetup for those students who are still trying to finalize housing or find a roommate.  Please join us!
