International Student Orientation Leaders

Apply to be an International Student Orientation Leader for next semester’s International Student Orientation! Orientation leaders will help the new international students move in to their residence hall rooms, give campus tours, lead their own small group of international students, assist in tracking attendance, participate in social events, and serve as a resource for the students. In turn, orientation leaders will get the opportunity to meet and build friendships with our newest international students from around the world.
