Will Your Cell Phone Work in the US?

We know that your cell phone is a very important item during your travels! If you’re like most students you’ll likely want phone service as soon as you land; to make sure that’s possible, start planning now. campusSIMS sends students a free SIM card in their home country so that they can get their US phone number immediately, and have mobile phone service as soon as they arrive in the US. Request your free SIM card, choose your plan, and feel confident in your journey from the start.


Working over the Summer

The summer semester is nearly here and for many of you that means exploring your job and internship opportunities. It’s important to know what type of jobs and how many hours you can work based upon your visa. Students on an F1 visa are typically allowed to work, but there are limitations. Check out our guide on working in the US to explore what type of employment you can have during break, then start your job search!
