Thank you for your interest in International Student Orientation (ISO)! ISO welcomes more than 100 new international students and their families to Wesleyan each fall. The purpose of ISO is to introduce international students to each other and to all that the Wesleyan community has to offer.

ISO does not happen by itself – it is the product of the leadership and energy of the ISO Intern and ISO Leaders (ISOLs) as guided by the OISA professional staff. The commitment and enthusiasm of ISO student staff is at the heart of its success. We are delighted that you would like to play a part in welcoming new international students to Wesleyan.

ISO Intern

  • During the Spring 2023 Semester, OISA will hire an ISO Intern to work over the summer with the office's professional staff members to plan Fall 2023 ISO. The ISO Intern application will be posted in Handshake and shared via email, the Wesleyan International Student E-newsletter (WISE), and OISA's Facebook and Instagram pages during the Spring 2023 Semester.  

ISO Leaders (ISOLs)

  • This year, OISA is collaborating with the Office of Student Involvement and the Resource Center to offer a single application for students who wish to serve as an orientation leader for ISO, New Student Orientation (NSO), or First Things First (FTF). More information about the application process to become an ISO Leader (ISOL) will be shared via OISA communications during the Spring 2023 Semester.
