Wesleyan Word of Wisdom Party
March 6, 6-7 pm @ Fries Center for Global Studies
Is there information you wish you had known when you were a first-year international student? Do you have any advice for incoming international students or your peers? The Office of International Student Affairs (OISA) is launching Wesleyan Words of Wisdom for current international students to give a 1-2 pieces of advice to new international students. Come share your advice, enjoy free food, and have your profile photo taken. Your photo, country flag(s), and advice will be featured on the digital signage at Fries Center for Global Studies and the OISA Facebook page.

Tax Workshop for International Students
March 27 and 28 from 4-6 pm @ Exley Science Center Room 150
Please bring your laptops, immigration documents (Visa, Passport, I-20, DS-2019) and any tax forms (W-2, W2-c and 1042-s) to the session. The same content will be covered twice on the 27th and the 28th of March. Choose one day that works the best for your schedule.

Please note that the tax workshop may not be relevant to first-year students. For seniors, it is important to let international students know that if they work this year, they will not get their tax money back (if they are eligible to get money back) until 2020. The best practice is NOT to close their U.S. bank account so that their tax return money can be deposited. Also, it’s good to remind them to look into bank policies to avoid maintenance fees esp. for those who plan to return to their home countries/work outside of the U.S. after graduation.
