Welcome to the University of Nevada, Reno, located in the beautiful Truckee Meadows in Northern Nevada.
The University of Nevada, Reno is proud to be a host site for the Fulbright Gateway Orientation program, which is intended to prepare you for your new life as an international graduate student in the United States and provide you with a head start on American culture, including its academic, financial, and legal systems.
The University of Nevada, Reno’s Northern Nevada International Center has prepared an interesting and rigorous orientation schedule, including sessions on academic life in the United States, survival skills for graduate study, U.S. history and social values, and how to maintain your psychological and physical health.
You will spend your daytime hours participating in valuable orientation sessions, getting to know he university’s beautiful campus, but even more important, you will get to know various slices of American life through various excursions and activities. You will have a chance to meet Americans in their own homes, mingle with Rotarians in avenues full of 100-year old cars, meet Native Americans at the Paiute Indian Reservation and finally recognize that Lake Tahoe offers one of the most spectacular and scenic views you will ever set your sights on.
We hope you enjoy this unique introduction to the United States here in Northern Nevada.
