The Office of International Student hosts orientation at the beginning of every semester. Orientation sessions are designed to introduce students to the policies and regulations that are required by the US Government and LIU Brooklyn. Topics that are covered include reporting in to the office, registering for classes, immunization requirements, insurance, working on campus and the social security card application process. All this is done in a casual fun-filled atmosphere. New students will also have the opportunity to meet the staff of the International Student Office along with current attending international students. Information about social events specifically targeted towards new international students throughout the semester is also distributed. Trips to either the Statue of Liberty or the Empire State Building are usually planned after every orientation session. For specific dates on when an international student orientation is held, please contact the International Students Office at 718-488-1216.
