International Pre-Orientation Program
Welcome to the Knox community, your new home away from home!
The Office of International Student Services is excited to welcome new international students to the International Pre-Orientation Program (IPOP) at Knox College! During IPOP, you'll take care of important things and start building a community of peers. IPOP is provided as a supplement to New Student Orientation, and participation in both orientation programs is required for F-1 visa students. U.S. students from abroad are welcome to participate by making a reservation with the Office of International Student Services.
Please plan to arrive for IPOP on Sunday, September 4. Students attending IPOP may arrive at any time throughout the day, and there is shuttle service available from the local airports and train station. Learn more about the shuttles and getting to campus. You can request a shuttle through the Arrival form on your student portal.
On September 5 and 6, you'll begin your transition to living and learning in the U.S. You'll have an opportunity to open a bank account, set up a cell phone, learn about healthcare in the U.S. and your student visa, and much more. We will also take trips to local shopping centers for things you might not be able to pack. Please check back soon for the complete IPOP schedule!
