1 – UPCOMING ISSO EVENTS
Try-A-Pie, November 17, 2-4pm
The ISSO likes to start our Thanksgiving feasting early every year with Try-A-Pie! You are cordially invited to join us to sample an array of delicious pies contributed by Brandeis staff/faculty and vote for your favorite! We look forward to seeing you there!
Travel Signature Days
November 14, 15, and 16 from 10am-4pm
If you will be traveling outside of the U.S. for the upcoming Thanksgiving or winter holidays, double check that you have gotten a travel signature on your I-20 or DS-2019 that will be less than 6 months old when you re-enter the U.S. If you need a new signature, you can get one on the spot at the ISSO on November 14, 15, and 16th from 10am-4pm. If you have a previous signature, but it is not less than 6 months old, you need a new signature.
To help you figure out if you need a travel signature or not, please find more information on our website under "Travel Information."
If you need a new travel signature, and you do not come to the ISSO for the Travel Signature Days, you will need to leave your I-20 or DS-2019 and retrieve it the following day. Please plan in advance and come to the Travel Signature Days if you can make it!
