What to Bring


Here are some additional items you might find useful to bring from home:

  • Medication that you are currently taking (access to prescribed drugs will vary in the U.S.)
  • Medical history if you are under treatment or prone to illness
  • Non-prescription remedies that you may commonly use (herbal, etc.)
  • Extra pair of eyeglasses or personal hygiene products that may not be available in the U.S.
  • Music (MP3s/CD's of your favorite music)
  • Umbrella or rain coat
  • Sports equipment such as tennis racket – though you can also borrow sports equipment from our campus recreation facilities
  • A small token or gift from your country as a “thank you” to families whom you visit or others
  • Sports clothes/bathing suit
  • A photocopy of your passport main page and the visa page. (We would advise that the copy be kept separately from the original.)
