OISS offers airport pick-up service on Monday, January 28, 2019. If you would like to be picked up from the airport by one of our airport greeters, please inform us by filling out the Airport Request Form. Our orientation leaders will meet you on the baggage claim level near Carousel 4. They will be in purple t-shirts and will be carrying University of St. Thomas signs. The shuttle service will bring you from the Minneapolis/St. Paul airport to the University of St. Thomas St. Paul Campus.
