International Excursions

Many international students do not have a car and there is a lot to see beyond Muskingum's campus! In order to help you experience more of life in the United States, the International Student Services Office provides programs off campus. Make sure you pay attention to the sign-up deadlines for each trip. Some trips may require a deposit. See Valerie in the TOC 216 for more information.

Fall 2017

Welcome to Muskingum University! We are so happy that you are here and we are excited to help you with our services at Muskingum. The International Student Services department will provide fun trips this semester as well as rides to the Social Security Office or Bureau of Motor Vehicles upon request.

Wal-Mart: Transportation is provided to Cambridge's Wal-Mart once a month for the first 18 students that sign up through the OrgSync page for International Student Services. This allows students the opportunity to get any food or other necessary items on a regular basis. Dates and details posted through OrgSync.

September- A bus will travel to Columbus on Sunday, Sept. 10th for the Columbus Crew soccer game, this soccer game is the professional league (MLS) and will cost $15 to go. (The bus is paid for by International Student Services and tickets are $25/each but the office has paid $10 towards each ticket.)

October- A Fall Break day trip will be planned by the Student Life Office for either Monday, Oct. 9th or Tuesday, October 10th. There are no classes on these dates. Watch for details to vote on the choices for the day trip.

Spring 2018

Dates coming soon for Spring Semester's Events If you have an idea, contact Valerie.


Directions for these trips: Please go on Orgsync and go to the International Student Services page. Once you get there click on the FORMS tab and look for the trips. The trips will be up on Orgsync 2-3 weeks prior to departure. After you sign up for a trip on Orgsync you will still need to pay for any deposit required (TOC 215) to confirm your spot on the trip.

Social Security Office Trips

The International Student Services office will provide transportation to take students to the Social Security Office for those who need to get a Social Security Number. To sign up for these trips please go to OrgSync and under the group International Student Services please click on FORMS. On the FORMS page there will be a sign up sheet that says Rides to Social Security Office.

Bureau of Motor Vehicle Trips

Students that wish to apply for a driving learner's permit may stop by the International Student Services Office (TOC 216) and pick up a study book. When the student is ready to take the test, and wishes to receive transportation to the testing location, he/she should schedule a time through OrgSync . Each student will be allowed one trip to the testing location. If the student does not pass the test, they must find another way to retake the test so make sure you study! No transportation or vehicles will be provided for the driver's license test.

Please make sure you are signing up for trips via orgsync! If you need help registering for orgsync, please see Valerie Smith in room TOC 216.
