The International Student Orientation is important because it will help you contextualize what you are about to learn and experience at Wheaton College. Over three days, topics such as Cultural Adjustment, Classroom Behavior and Expectations, Student Support Services and Immigration Regulations will be discussed to prepare you to succeed during the time you are here at Wheaton. This is also the chance and opportunity to get to know your future classmates and make friends in an intimate setting prior to everyone arriving on campus.
We have attached an International Student Pre-Arrival Handbook for your convenience. Please read it thoroughly as it contains information (transportation, logistics, money, banking, phones, etc) you will need prior to your arrival.
Feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions regarding the handbook.
Message to parents
Congratulations on having your daughter/son be admitted to Wheaton College!
We understand that you are excited for them to be attending college in the United States. We know that you want to spend as much time with them as possible including taking them out to dinner, shopping for necessary items and saying your goodbyes.
However, we must kindly remind you that International Student Orientation is REQUIRED and your daughter/son must attend every session on the calendar below. We have had instances where students have missed crucial information from our office due to families taking them out at the start of the day.
We kindly and politely ask that you please refrain from taking them for these activities until AFTER the day’s events are over. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact: email@example.com
Thank you! We greatly appreciate it! We look forward to seeing you in the Fall!
We have provided some useful links for you below.
