"No one is going to give you free money."

This past week, we learned about a new scam that may impact you. Students received checks in the mail that were fraudulent. Leana, one of our advisors, shared that "no one is going to give you free money." If someone is asking to give or get money from you, don't follow through with them.

Academic Training Evaluation

If you've engaged in Academic Training during or after your studies, you are required to complete an Academic Training Evaluation. We recommend that you complete the evaluation at least every six months. You can find the evaluation form in MyISSS. Questions? Please meet with a J-1 advisor.

Happy Halloween!!!

Three of the advisors in ISS had some fun today dressing up like their favorite emojis. If you see Justin (the only J-1 advisor in the bunch), make sure to ask him about his chosen emoji!
