Welcome

Monday, August 18 — Thursday, August 21, 2014

OIS (Orientation for International Students) is designed to provide the best possible transition to Yale for incoming freshmen from all over the world. It is the perfect venue for getting to know your fellow international students as well as freshmen who are on campus for other pre-orientation programs.

Organized and run by Yale College international students, this fun-filled program introduces you to Yale’s rich academic and cultural resources and includes social activities, opportunities to explore your new home town, and presentations on topics such as choosing your courses and intercontinental adjustment.

Time is also scheduled to pick up necessities not brought from home, get a cell phone and open a bank account. Plus we promise a little free time to get rid of some of that jet lag. You will also want to come prepared to showcase your talents at the fabulous OIS Talent Show!
