Autumn 2018 International Student Experience Workshop Series

Ohio State is home to more than 6,000 international students who are a vibrant part of the campus community and interact with faculty and staff every single day.

To educate faculty and staff about how they can work more effectively with the international student population, the Office of International Affairs developed the International Student Experience Workshop Series.

The workshop has three sessions that cover three large themes: Pre-Arrival and Check-In and Orientation, Cultural Adjustment and Academics and Career Expectations

The workshops will include presentations by staff from the Office of International Affairs and other offices on campus, as well as a panel of international students who will answer questions and share their experiences on the selected topics.

Each workshop is offered twice, and you only need to choose one to attend. Those who complete the three-part series will receive a training certificate from the Office of International Affairs. There is no cost to register, and light refreshments will be provided during each workshop.
