  • Get to know more about your immigration responsibilities as F-1 and J-1 visa holders
  • Register for classes
  • Meet your peers from around the U.S. and the world
  • Get acclimated to U.S. cultural values and practices
  • Take a shopping trip, allowing you to buy some items you may need
  • Meet our friendly and helpful staff, who are happy to assist you during your transition to NKU
