Activities

  • Orientation is an important step for new international students. Whether you are new to the United States or to Brooklyn College, it is essential that you learn about campus resources and the available student support services. There is a college-wide orientation in August and January as well as an International Student Welcome Workshop. International students are strongly encouraged to attend both. 
  • International Student Welcome Workshop is for all new international students and provides a personalized introduction to the Office of International Student Services and presents important information on staying in status, health and safety, culture shock, and maximizing campus resources to make the most of the Brooklyn College experience. The workshop is every August and January.
  • One to World brings future leaders from around the world together with Americans - one to one - sharing similarities and appreciating differences to build cultural understanding across the globe. Through community visits, the Global Classroom program, professional and community service opportunities, One to World is an effective way to learn about the United States, build your network, and share your culture with others.
