Polaris resume review

Polaris is hosting a resume review event on September 19th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM in 114 Bruninks Hall. Experts will give you practical tips and career advice in preparation for the CSE Career Fair. They will be serving free pizza and Polaris swag.

International Student Career Fair Preparation Workshop 

Join this session to prepare for the upcoming career fairs! Learn helpful tips and information from presenters from ISSS and Career Services. All UMN international students who are attending fall career fairs are welcome to attend. 

This presentation will be offered live twice on two different dates and times. We recommend that you attend one of the two workshops. Recordings will also be made available. Register to receive the Zoom link. Please email UMN International Career Consultant, Jane, with any questions about this session: sitt0036@umn.edu

PCB Population Tutorial

Join IEEE on September 15th from 6:00 - 7:00 PM to learn more about  PCB tech and design while getting to know each other. Bring the PCBs you received at the CSE Orgs event! We will be working in the IEEE Room (Kenneth H. Keller Hall 2-110). 

Star party: James Webb Space Telescope first image release event

Recommended for all ages

Join the Bell Museum as we celebrate the James Webb Space Telescope and its upcoming decade of science! Doors open at 7:45pm for a NASA live stream and indoor activities. Starting at 8:30pm, the Bell will set up telescopes to observe the Moon, Saturn, and our favorite deep space objects (weather permitting!).

Registration is requested through Eventbrite.

Minnesota’s Astronomy Classroom programming is generously supported by Ruth & John Huss.

Prof. Jiarong Hong at the Wilson Lecture Series

Innovative Digital Inline Holography: from Flow Measurements to Cancer Diagnostics

Particles (e.g., dust, cells, droplets) with size ranging from nm to mm are ubiquitous in our daily life. To determine their properties in situ is vital for many applications. Here I will share with you our recent advancement in both the instrumentation and computational algorithms of digital inline holography (DIH) as a low cost and compact tool for 3D imaging of particles suspended in the flow. Enabled by such advancement, we have implemented DIH not only to study fundamental problems in the field of fluid dynamics, but also characterize particle properties and behaviors in agriculture, meteorology, medical sciences, microbiology, material sciences, etc. A number of such examples including measurements of wall-bounded turbulent flows, characterization of risks of airborne disease transmission, and detection of cancer cells in a blood stream will be provided.

About Prof. Hong

Jiarong Hong is a professor in Mechanical Engineering at University of Minnesota and the Chief Technology Officer of Astrin Biosciences, Inc., a startup company focusing on providing innovative solutions for personalized cancer diagnostics and treatment. He received his B.S. from University of Science and Technology of China in 2005 and M.S. and Ph.D. from Johns Hopkins University in 2008 and 2011. He is interested in developing novel flow imaging techniques aka flowscopes that allow us to “see” the flow and particle movements within the flow at unprecedented spatial and temporal resolutions across a broad range of disciplines. Using such flowscopes, his work not only addresses challenging fundamental questions in the field of fluid dynamics, but also enables research in other fields including oceanography, agriculture, robotics and sensing, microbiology, medical sciences, material sciences, etc. Hong is a recipient of National Science Foundation CAREER award, the Office of Naval Research Young Investigator award, and the McKnight Land Grant Professorship from the University of Minnesota.

Academic success day

The event is open to all international students: non-degree, undergraduate, transfer, graduate, and professional school

Join us in person to meet important offices that will help you do your best in academics at UMN. You'll also get the chance to connect with your fellow international students.

Activities include:

  • Academic resource fair
  • Tours of the Center for Writing, Minnesota English Language Program, and SMART Learning Commons
  • Workshops focused on academics and student success
  • International Buddy Program session on making friends in the U.S.

Register now.

You must register for each section in order to attend (if you are unable to register using this link, email us at isuccess@umn.edu). Walk-ins will only be allowed if space is available.

Goldy's intro to welcome week

This event is open to all new international students: non-degree, undergraduate, transfer, graduate, and professional school

Join us at Goldy's Gameroom for games and food, meeting ISSS and Welcome Week staff — and perhaps, a special guest from the University of Minnesota!

Global Tea Time

Join other international students for Global Tea Time to relax and chat with other students who are also arriving at the University of Minnesota. The gathering is jointly sponsored by Housing & Residential Life and International Student and Scholar Services. On August 25, we will play Graduate the U, a board game created by a UMN alumni where you can learn about the places and choices you will experience at the UMN. After the game we will leave Centennial Hall for a free tour of the Recreation and Wellness Center (known as the "Rec Center").

Please register if you want to participate in the tour.

ISSS welcome session for international graduate/professional school students

Graduate students should register for this in-person event through the ISSS Check-in and Welcome Session e-form in MyISSS.
