In addition to the GSD International Student Orientation, HIO offers weekly sessions for international students and their families. Their online Welcome Guide will help you accomplish the tasks necessary to establish yourself in the Boston/Cambridge area.
HIO offers a list of enrolled international students who have volunteered to appear as a resource for other students. Use it to find students from your country and others and don’t be shy about calling them. Speaking your own language, sharing a meal from home and talking about life in the US are important to help you adjust.
The HIO recommends checking with them before making any travel plans. This includes when you are considering traveling option studios, too. Students should only travel outside the United States if all of their documents related to US immigration status are in order.
