The Office of Global Education has a Blackboard site especially for international students at Dickinson College. Log on to Blackboard (http://blackboard.dickinson.edu/) to view "International Services." From there, click on the buttons to the left to navigate the site:
Under USEFUL INFORMATION, you will find orientation materials, frequently asked questions, and information about Social Security cards.
The FORMS button will take you to a list of commonly used forms for you to print and use.
The OPEN FORUMS page is a place for group discussions and can be used as a message board for organizing travel arrangements with other international students.
Also be sure to check the CALENDAR for important deadlines as well as activities around campus.
We will be adding to and editing the site on a regular basis. If you have ideas or questions about the site, please contact Bryan Bartosik-Velez.
