Welcome to Austin College!
We are excited to have you here. Since you have decided to come to Austin College, please see Living on Campus for additional advice on what to bring with you.
In addition, we recommend that international students make and keep photocopies of important documents:
- US F-1 Visa Page
- Admission Letter
- Health Insurance Documents
- Financial Information
Remember that the U.S. uses 110-volt and three-prong outlet plugs. If you need to use adapters, consider bringing them with you.
You will want to bring some things with you that remind you of home, such as your favorite music, photographs, or small decorative items. Your new friends on campus will be interested in your country and culture, so you may want to have a few items that share your traditions.
One of the student groups, Student International Organization, sponsors a very well-attended and popular talent and fashion show each spring. Many Austin College organizations participate, and highlights of the program are examples of traditional clothing and music from various countries.
