International Student Services
Congratulations on choosing Walsh University. I look forward to meeting you and welcoming you into our International family! Under the Brochures link, you will find a document entitled "Know Before you Go" developed to help you prepare for your journey to the United States. In it you will find helpful hints about what to pack and what to expect, as well as a reminder to bring along traditional dress to wear for our annual International Dinner held each November, and our annual World Week in March. Please keep in contact with me as your arrival date approaches and don't hesitate to email or call me with any questions. I look forward to seeing you soon.
