The Office of International Services (OIS) organizes the International Student Orientation to answer questions that may arise as you make your transition to the University of Maryland.
Orientation for J-1 researchers, short-term scholars, professors, interns and trainees is held every Wednesday morning from 10:00am - 12:00pm. Attendance at orientation is required as soon as possible after your arrival at the university.
International Coffee Hour is a weekly event (during the Fall and Spring semesters) where students, staff, and the Maryland community can get together and socialize.Summer International Coffee Hour
OIS has extended our popular International Coffee Hour series to include dates through Summer 2011.
Students who are majoring in any SLLC program can meet with international students outside the classroom and practice their target language in an informal, structured way. More information is available for SLLC majors and international students who wish to participate.
This series of events is co-organized by OIS with other campus departments. The goal is to centrally advertise all the different career related events that are specifically geared towards international students.
