It is strongly recommended by students who have participated in the program in the past, and by our office, that you make every effort to attend. This orientation will supplement your other orientations (Freshman, Exchange and Graduate Orientations). It is designed to allow you to meet both American and other international students, and to provide you with useful information about Boston College and the facts you should know as an international student in the United States.
