New International Student Orientation

We're planning for an IN-PERSON New International Student Orientation for Fall 2021!

If you're an incoming international student, please watch carefully for emails from Amy Weir with further details.  We plan for the Orientation to run from Wednesday, August 18 through Friday, August 20.

Each August (for fall semester) and January (for spring semester) when new international students arrive to campus to start their studies, the International Center prepares an orientation.  It’s during New International Student Orientation that you will learn about the following:

  • academics at Wabash
  • resources available on campus
  • maintaining your F-1 status
  • living in America
  • making friends & social opportunities
  • staying active & healthy
  • and much more!

You’ll meet guest speakers who will talk on a variety of topics and you’ll get to know your fellow incoming international students much better.  We plan in time to play "get-to-know-you" games and to explore the campus.  We will have a copy of the New International Student Orientation Schedule posted here later this summer.

We will have a Wabash College driver and a current student meet you at the airport when you arrive to the Indianapolis International Airport (IND).  The student will have a sign with your name on it, and he'll be looking for you.  (The airport is not big, so they can find you.)  The current student and the driver will bring you to campus and help you to move into your room on campus so you'll be ready for orientation.
