Message from the coordinator
Welcome! Dear Humphrey Fellows, We are very happy to welcome you to CESL. We are excited you are coming to Tucson, and we hope to make your 8-week orientation a useful pre-academic experience. When you have your flight arrival information, please email me, Angel Miller, and we will do our best to greet you at the airport, help you on to the Stagecoach and meet you at the Sahara Apartments. email@example.com
The most important thing you can take care of before you arrive is your MMR immunizations. I have included below more details about your arrival and program.
I look forward to seeing you soon, here in Tucson.
Immunizations and Health
As all other students at CESL, you must bring proof of MMR ( Measles, mumps & rubella) immunization. Please read the web page for details. If you do not have proof of immunization you may want to be immunized at home where it is less expensive than here. You must be immunized here before you can start class. MMR at the Campus health center is $58.00. You must show proof of 2 MMR immunizations. They must be at least 30 days apart. If you are immunized at home, be sure that you pay careful attention to the 30 day interval.
If you are immunized for the first time more than 30 days before you report to CESL on June 13, you will need to have a second MMR here. Health Insurance While at CESL you will be covered by our health insurance for major illness or accidents. For routine and urgent medical care, your primary care will be the Campus Health Center. If you should need to see a doctor after your CESL program ends and before you arrive at your academic site, you may call 1-800-461-0430 to request a temporary health insurance card.
Arrival and Dorm
Arrival in Tucson International Airport. We are expecting you to arrive on Saturday, June 11, and we will have someone at the airport most of that day to greet you downstairs in the baggage area and help you get on the Arizona Stagecoach which will take you to the Sahara Apartments. Be sure to let us know of your arrival time.
In case you have any lost or missed flights and you cannot notify us, take the Arizona Stagecoach, located in the baggage area, to your assigned dorm. The Stagecoach will have a list of your names.
If your luggage does not arrive with you, it is VERY important that you file an immediate lost baggage claim with the airline that you arrived in Tucson on before you leave the airport - no matter how tired you are!
The airlines have offices in the baggage area near the machine the bags arrive on. On the claim give the street address and phone number of the dorm below. Lost luggage most often arrives soon after you and is delivered within 24 or 48 hours.
Travel to your academic assignment in August: Some US airlines now charge extra fees for checked baggage. Please check your airline's baggage policy on their website well before travel and plan accordingly.
