Orientation and Arrival Information

Check-In

The first thing you will do at UNA is check-in. Someone from our office will pick you up at the hotel and bring you to Powers Hall (Office of International Affairs) on the UNA campus. Check-in fulfills a requirement of your F-1 student status and allows us to report that you are maintaining student status.

Orientation

Orientation is a valuable time before you begin classes. Therefore, your attendance is mandatory. During these days, you will learn your way around campus and how to find many important buildings. Our staff and the OIA Navigator team will personally guide you as you set up your room or apartment, bank account, mail box and student account. We’ll even take you shopping, help you set up your cell phone and introduce you to Leo and Una, our African lions!

You will take important placement tests, meet with advisors and enroll for classes. You will get a successful introduction to UNA, the city of Florence and the responsibilities of being an F-1 or J-1 student. In short, you will get a lot of information and you will meet a lot of people. When Orientation is over, you will be amazed at how much you have learned to be successful at UNA!

The Check In and Orientation dates are listed on your admission letter and in emails from Ms. Cala Flippo, Student Services Coordinator and DSO/ARO. Need a reminder? Email oiaservices@una.edu.
