The Parent Puzzle: Fitting International Parents into New Student Orientation

Friday, June 2
1:30 PM - 2:30 PM

When international students arrive on campus for new student orientation, they do not always come alone. This presentation examines the key elements that make up Purdue University’s annual International Parent Welcome, which comprises nearly 500 international parents and family members, thus providing a model for other schools’ international student orientation staff to consider.
