Attention: To those members who have received admission to US universities for Fall 2013

Congratulations on your success in getting admission to an American university where you would be starting your studies very soon.

Each year, a number of our advisees leave Sri Lanka to study in the US. The US-Sri Lanka Fulbright Commission (US-SLFC) conducts a Pre-departure Orientation to help the departing students cope with the demands of the new academic and social culture.

I am writing to invite you to join others at the 2013 Pre-departure Orientation on Friday July 12th. The Program starts at 1.30. Please report by 1.10 p.m. Please see the attachment for details.

Please share this information with others who may have got admission to American universities this year.
