Letter to International Students

August 15, 2018

Dear Students,

As we begin fall semester, I want to take time to write to you, our international students. We are glad that you are here, and we are excited by the promise of new experiences that lie ahead.

You should know that we are unconditionally committed to you. We value your contributions to our thriving campus culture and we look forward to the great things you will achieve here, and long into the future. We believe that a university community of people with diverse experiences and viewpoints helps us build a greater global generation of leaders and researchers who will work together to advance the public good.

Whether you are new to the university or a returning student, your presence makes USC a better place and we are honored to have you as part of the Trojan Family.

If you have any questions about your experience here as an international student, we have many resources to assist you. The Office of International Services provides advising services and support for you and your families: ois.usc.edu, telephone: 213-740-2666, or email: ois@usc.edu. Other resources that might be useful include:

I hope you have a rewarding, enriching year ahead.
