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.
