The highlight of the Office of International Students & Study Abroad's fall orientation was Houston Community College Dr. Cesar Maldonado’s welcome speech where he received a rousing reception when he took a selfie with the crowd of students.

Dr. Maldonado expressed HCC’s gratitude for the benefits of having such a strong multicultural population, and inspired students to remain focused on their goals in the face of any obstacles.

Each semester, the Office of International Students & Study Abroad (OISS&SA) holds a mandatory orientation for new students to discuss topics such as: F-1, International, visa regulations; safety and security; employment; social security; transportation, driver license, adjusting to a new culture, and a general overview of the HCC academic process and ESL program amongst other important information to ensure all students are well prepared to excel while studying at HCC.
