Plan on arriving at the Eastern Iowa Airport in Cedar Rapids, Iowa on August 23, 2017 for our International Student Orientation.

A Cornell College staff member will pick you up from the airport and bring you to campus. If you have any questions about the pick up from the airport, contact the Office of Intercultural Life.

Our International Student Orientation takes place before the New Student Orientation for domestic students. By taking part in our International Student Orientation, you will be able to tour campus with your fellow international students and become more familiar with the town of Mount Vernon, Iowa before the arrival of the U.S. students.

Besides becoming familiar with campus and the town you will be calling home, we can help you with many other common needs:

  • Open a bank account in Mount Vernon, Iowa
  • Shop for necessary supplies
  • Introduction to immigration regulations
  • Resources for your health and education
  • Introduction to our computer and library services
  • Answer any questions you may have
  • Offer adjustment strategies
