Welcome to Austin College!
We are excited to have you here. Since you have decided to come to Austin College, please go to Living on Campus for additional advice on what to bring with you.
In addition, we recommend that international students make sure they have photocopies of important documents:
- US F-1 Visa Page
- Admissions letter
- Health Insurance documents
- Financial Information
Remember that the US 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 to share them.
One of the student clubs, the 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 the examples of traditional clothing and music from various countries.
