International exchange student orientation is too short (only 1.5 days) to discuss ALL of the great campus services UNCW has to offer. Therefore, we've provided short activities below to help you learn about UNCW campus life. For every activity you complete, you earn a stamp in your Seahawk Passport (student services passport). You'll receive your Seahawk passport pre-filled with stamps when you attend international exchange student orientation on August 14 & 15.
