Congratulations on becoming part of the Jacksonville University (JU) community!

Once you arrive on campus, you will need to participate in our International Student Orientation.  This three (3) day program will help orient you to life at JU and in the United States as you begin your time here as a student. Our International Student Orientation gives you the opportunity and to learn about JU’s campus and its’ resources, as well as meet faculty, staff, and students from other countries.

At this program you will also get to meet your International Student Advisors, Dr. Kristie Gover and Susan Bonfanti.  Their office is located on the third floor of the Davis Student Commons and will be the place you come to get many of your questions answered, especially about immigration-related issues.

Orientation is your first step toward acclimating yourself to campus and to becoming a JU Dolphin! We look forward to meeting you soon and to working with you in the months to come.
