Pre - Departure Orientation 2018

Every year, Dilip Oak’s Academy organizes a pre-departure seminar for students joining American universities in the fall semester. This program is open for students of the Academy as well as for all other students who have secured admission for the Fall 2018 semester. As the capacity of Siddhi Banquet Hall is only 1,400, we have to split the program into two groups.

Group 1

(Timing: 2:30 pm to 5:00 pm)

Students joining universities with names ranging from A to R (e.g. Arizona State University, Rochester Institute of Technology, etc.) and those ranging from Sa to So (e.g. San Diego State University, Southern Methodist University).

Group 2

(Timing: 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm)

Students joining universities with names ranging from T to Z (e.g. Texas Tech University, University of XXXX) and those ranging from St to Sy (e.g. State University of New York - Buffalo, Syracuse University).
Please note that California State University will fall under the letter ‘C’ and the University of California will fall under the letter ‘U’. Similarly, Florida State University will fall under the letter ‘F’ and the University of Florida will fall under the letter ‘U’.
