ARRIVAL - Sunday, august 24, 2014

International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) has arranged for bus transportation from Chicago's O'Hare Airport to Platteville to transport new international students to campus for the Fall 2014 semester. New students who would like to take advantage of this service are requested to arrive in the U.S., at Chicago's O'Hare airport by 4:00 p.m. (16:00) on Sunday, August 24, 2014. The coach will stop only at the International Terminal (#5) at O'Hare. UW-Platteville staff will meet you in the arrival hall (lower level just outside of baggage claim) of the International Terminal (#5) near the McDonald’s around 5:30 p.m. (17:30); we will be carrying a “Welcome to UW-Platteville” sign.
