Greetings, Students & Scholars!

Fall in love with October at CMU! Cooler weather means it’s the perfect time to cozy up with a good book, explore a new farmers market, or a few more outdoor events. We also want to welcome the nearly 3,500 students who arrived on campus this fall and completed your check-in with the Office of International Education. We hope you enjoy this issue of the OIE "Friday Greetings" email.
