Before you leave home
What to pack
Check with your airline for up-to-date luggage requirements before you fly. Remember, you will need to carry your luggage, so pack only what you can carry. Make sure you know what type of clothing to pack and what you do not need to bring with you for your room. There are opportunities for you to share your culture. You can bring your national dress or clothes associated with a hobby or sport you enjoy in your home country, and bring items such as photos, books, souvenirs and music so you have reminders of home!
Always label all of your luggage clearly. The label should have your full name and the address of INTO CSU:
INTO Colorado State University
1037 Campus Delivery
Fort Collins CO 80523-1037 USA
Apply for your visa
