Letter from your International Exchange Student Adviser

Amy Mabery, Student Adviser

Are you ready for the new adventure of UNCW?

I like to be adventurous, but sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all the details involved. For example, right now I am planning a trip to San Diego, California. I am excited about visiting San Diego (I've never been), but I am a bit stressed about booking the flights, finding a hotel, checking out the 'best' restaurants and of course, deciding which attractions are worth seeing in my limited time.

So what do I do? When I feel overwhelmed with details, I ask for help! I have a travel agent booking my flight, I picked my hotel from a list of 'recommened downtown hotels' and I'll choose restaurants and sightseeing activities based on their internet reviews.

In many ways, I can be your resource for helping you navigate the information for your arrival to UNCW. I’ve broken down the things you need to know and do before you arrive into a clear step-by-step calendar with links (see the navigation on the right). I've also provided you with a fillable pre-arrival checklist to mark-off tasks as you complete them.

So what happens when you’ve read through all this material but still can’t find the answers? That is when you email me and I’ll be happy to help you as best I can.
