Welcome to the International Community at HWS!
Congratulations on your acceptance! It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to HWS and to our outstanding international community.
International students have a long history of noteworthy contributions to the HWS community through exemplary extracurricular and academic performance. We are confident that you will continue this legacy, and we look forward to welcoming you into a community eager to celebrate your achievements and contribute to your personal, academic and professional growth.
As you prepare to pack your bags and start an exciting new adventure, know that all of HWS's international community shares the common experience of leaving home to study in the United States. This tight-knit community is more than willing to offer insight and support throughout this process to make your transition smooth and enjoyable.
Throughout your time at HWS, we also hope that you find the Intercultural Affairs Office to be a place to share with other international students and join events that celebrate multiculturalism and world cultures, including dinners, workshops, multicultural events and outings.
We hope to see you during International Student Orientation, a special orientation that is specific to the needs of our international students. Held from August 20-22, Orientation will give you a head start and a chance to meet other current and incoming international students.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions.
We'll see you soon on campus!
