ISS & ISHIP Hours this week

Friday is Veterans Day!

I'm sure you're all aware that you don't have school this Friday, November 11, but do you know why?
In the U.S., we celebrate Veterans Day every November 11th. During this day, we honor the people who have served in the military and fought in foreign wars.
You may actually meet veteran students in your classes here at UW. There is even an office dedicated to offering them support.
If you happen to meet a veteran student or community member this week, ask them about their life or experience. We have so much to learn from one another when we connect.

Traveling this winter break? Get a travel signature!

It was nice to see some of you this morning when you stopped in for your travel signature. We have two more travel signature clinics this fall to get ready for winter break travels! The next one is coming soon!
  • Date: Thursday, November 17th
  • Time: 9 AM to 12 PM
  • Location: Schmitz 490
  • Materials Needed: Bring a paper copy of your most recent I-20.

Along with being closed this Friday, 11/11, we have some other office changes coming up that we wanted to remind you about!

  • November 24 & 25 - Thanksgiving and Indigenous People's Day - ISS will be closed and we will not respond to any emails.
