The Office of International Affairs is now accepting applications for orientation leaders and peer advisors – a diverse group of students who welcome new international students to Ohio State and the city of Columbus and help them adapt to life in the United States.

Students who apply to be an orientation leader must be available to work 36 – 38 hours per week from Monday, July 22 – Sunday, August 21, 2019. Students selected as orientation leaders will be responsible for welcoming new international students, answering questions on a variety of topics such as transportation, life on campus and things to do in Columbus, while also leading orientation events and activities.

Those applying to be peer advisors will help connect new students to important university resources and policies as well as sharing their experiences as successful students. Peer advisors also help ensure that new students have a positive check-in and orientation experience. 

Learn more about these paid positions and apply to work alongside the Office of International Affairs. Orientation leader applications are due by Friday, February 22 at 5 p.m. Peer advisor applications and recommendations are due by Friday, February 15 at 5 p.m.

More than 100 volunteers are needed to help with Taste of OSU on Friday, February 15, from 5 – 9 p.m. at the Ohio Union. The event celebrates the diverse culture of Ohio State international students through food, performances and cultural exhibits. Volunteers provide directions to guests, serve the recycling station, administer guest surveys, take photos, replenish supplies and other duties. Please register online by January 24.
