Orientation Overview

The International Center's 2018 Summer Orientation will be held from Monday, August 13, through Friday, August 31. The information below is from 2017 and will give you an idea about the workshops and social events that were offered last year. This page will be updated throughout the summer as we plan the workshops and social events for our 2018 Summer Orientation. Please check back periodically for updates.

During Orientation, you will:

  • Attend workshops designed to help make your transition easier
  • Enjoy informal social events where you can relax and meet new friends
  • Talk with other international students, scholars and orientation peer advisors about life in Michigan

Use the Orientation calendar and workshop descriptions to plan your schedule. Don't forget to attend some social events as well! Most workshops and social events are repeated during the three week Orientation period to accommodate different schedules.
