A pre-orientation program for first-year international students and families

This optional pre-orientation program gives international students an opportunity to get to know the College and each other before the arrival of the rest of the first-year students.

A series of workshops provides information on making the transition to life at Connecticut College as smooth as possible. A special session is held on immigration and visa regulations.

Odyssey will take place on Wednesday, Aug. 24, 2016. International students will arrive on Tuesday, Aug. 23. 

Participation is voluntary, but encouraged. If you would like to attend this program, please complete the reservation form that will be emailed to you by the International Student Adviser and return it by the return date.

You will have access to your room on Aug. 23. Parents are encouraged to stay to participate in Odyssey and the activities of Arrival Day.
