Personal Information

Staying In Touch With Home: It's a great adventure coming to a new place to study, but be fair to yourself, your family and your friends: stay in touch. There are all sort of reasons to stay in touch with home, and all sorts of ways to do so. The United States has a well-developed network of communications ranging from traditional postal service (available on campus for most mailings) to international express mailings, such as Federal Express or DHL) to advanced telecommunications (each student is given an e-mail account which can be used in all on-campus computer labs). These computers also provide access to the World Wide Web. You might be able to make an initial phone call home from the International Student Services office.
