The Office for International Students & Scholars (OISS) will offer a free shuttle from St. Louis-Lambert International Airport to campus.

Religious Observances

The Office of Religious, Spiritual, and Ethical Life (ORSEL) offers connections with a wide variety of religious organizations on campus and in the St. Louis area. Please reach out to ORSEL to get connected with campus ministry groups and St. Louis organizations.

It is our goal that students will be able to fully observe their faith, practices, and traditions without missing important information. Students should reach out to their TXSM if they plan on missing an orientation event for a religious observance to ensure the student has access to any information they may miss.

Accommodation Statement

We strive to host inclusive, accessible events. If you have a disability and require accommodations (such as assistive listening device, captioning, large print, reserved front row seat, advanced copy of slides to be projected, etc.) in order to fully participate in Winter Welcome, please contact Student Transitions & Family Programs.
