Important Information Pertaining to Orientation
Peer Mentors are volunteers who have been selected to assist new students during the international student orientation. Peer Mentors will be leaders of small groups of international students to answer many of the questions that arise during orientation. Peer Mentors are selected based upon their commitment to help others and undergo training to be of service to new students.
A complete list of Peer Mentors will be posted prior to orientation. You can direct your orientation questions to Peer Mentors and they will assist you.
Past Peer Mentors
While orientation for international students who have studied less than a year in the U.S. is three days; there is also a semester course for 1 credit- KSP 106 - Education and Culture in the United States. This course gives students, who are new to this country and to the U.S. higher education, a broad overview of the U.S. educational system, and provides a forum for discussion and comparison of customs and beliefs as they affect relationships among students and professors. You will be provided information on registration procedures for this class during orientation.
