"We are delighted to welcome a new class of global Gorloks to the home campus in Webster Groves," said Bethany Keller, assistant director International Student Affairs. "The enthusiastic group of students kicked off their new experiences here in the States with icebreaker activities, connecting with campus and community resources, learning the details of their visa requirements, preparing for classes and exploring academic support resources, all while having fun getting to know each other and our current student volunteers."

Volunteer Opportunities

Our next orientation for new international students will take place March 11. Volunteers are always welcome to assist the MCISA team in greeting students at the airport, helping with event logistics and joining our welcome teams.
