It is important that you have all of your travel arrangements finalized before leaving. Make sure you know your flight itinerary and have transportation arranged to and from the airport. Be sure to carry all important phone numbers and contact information for your contacts in Nashville (and in other U.S. cities). Keep this information separate from your travel documents (I-20 or DS-2019, etc.) and passport. Your passport and travel documents need to be readily accessible for immigration officials.
Essential Items to Bring:
For those of you living in the Residence Halls please keep in mind that you will need to provide your own toiletries, sheets, towels, pillows, pillowcases, blankets, and mattress cover. You are encouraged to bring items that will make you comfortable for the first few nights in Nashville until you are able to go to a store and purchase the remaining items.
