Email #1: Greetings

Dear Student,


We have received your name as having enrolled for the fall 2017 semester at Penn State Altoona as either a new international student or a U.S. student who has been living abroad. If this is not the best email address at which to reach you please let us know.

We are excited that you will be joining the Penn State community for the 2017-2018 academic year. You will be joining a growing international population at the College, with nearly 200 students currently enrolled from over forty countries worldwide.

You will be receiving several electronic communications from the Office of Student Affairs over the coming weeks. Please check your email on a regular basis for information. This is critical as email is our main communication mode. Your next email will about housing information for both on and off campus.

These communications will contain important information regarding your arrival for the fall semester, housing information, international student orientation, and more. Please watch for this information. Please also respond to all information requests that you receive from us, as we need to have as much information regarding your travel plans, housing, etc., as possible to best serve your potential needs from our end.

Again, we are very excited that you have chosen to attend Penn State Altoona. We look forward to working with you to help assure your transition to the University and campus is as smooth as possible.
