All new international students will engage in an international orientation session. This session is to assist you in understanding the immigration guidelines to which you must adhere to. Following are important times and reminders specific to International Students - you should consult your program orientation for other events and activities.

Orientation for the new incoming students for the spring term is generally much smaller in size - however - we will still provide with information for a successful transition to life at Clarkson University!

Lending Cupboard Schedule - TBD

 What is the Lending Cupboard? The Lending Cupboard is a special interest group dedicated to helping international students, scholars and their families. The Lending Cupboard is a place where you can borrow items you may need to complete your dorm room or apartment. These items are loaned to you at no cost and when you are done you simply return them to the Cupboard. There are a wide range of items - from furniture to clothing and everything in between. Please note - this facility is run by members of The Clarkson Club.
