New Student Orientation Welcomes International Students from 21 Countries

Opening International Welcome Days Sessions.

CWRU welcomed international students from 21 countries during International Welcome Days, a two-day event just prior to new student orientation.  An unprecedented 15% of the incoming undergraduate class are international students this year, helping to make the class of 2019 one of CWRU's most diverse groups on campus.

The International Welcome Days are designed to help international students acclimate to campus and provide resources to create a seamless transition to American culture and higher education.  In addition to providing a welcoming transition experience, students are able to participate in programming that focuses on challenges and areas of concern that are specific to international students.

Workshops included dialogue about practical issues such as immigration regulations, healthcare in the U.S., and academic success at CWRU.  Students also enjoyed various social activities both on and off campus and had the opportunity to meet with president Barbara R. Snyder as she welcomed the class at the annual international student welcome luncheon.

We wish the class of 2019 all the best with the many exciting experiences and goals ahead of them.


Fall 2015 International Student Success Series 

The Office of International Student Services in the Center for International Affairs is excited to announce the Fall 2015 International Student Success Series offering a variety of programs, workshops, meetings, and events for CWRU international students. 

The series is designed to help international students transition and better understand the social and academic culture at CWRU. Each part of the series is designed to enhance important life skills and incorporates knowledgeable trainers from across campus. The Center has partnered with various offices including Educational Student Services, the Career Center, and University Counseling Services to offer support on topics such as finding internships, dealing with homesickness, traveling in the US, learning American cultural systems, and exploring university traditions .
