Spouses & Family
Students and scholars are encouraged to schedule a separate check-in appointment for their spouses. During a spouse check-in the OIS staff reviews resources for dependents and provides a general introduction to life in the United States (and Raleigh more specifically). Please call (919) 515-2961 or email OIS@ncsu.edu to schedule a spouse check-in. All spouses are advised to bring their travel documents with them to the check-in (I-20/DS-2019, passport, and I-94 card).
I.M.O.M - International Moms or Mates: (I.M.O.M.) is a group for spouses of international students and scholars at NC State University. Meetings are held every Wednesday from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM at the E.S. King Commons building. Two Wednesdays of the month feature a cooking class of typical American recipes while the other meetings of the month focus on different aspects of American culture, projects, or community activities. Past topics have included cross-cultural communication, weddings, babies, and holidays. iM.O.M. is a place for personal growth, friendship, and fun - a place to belong in an unfamiliar place. Children are welcome. Please join us!
For more information contact the OIS at (919) 515-2961.
