GENERAL INFORMATION


It's ok to have questions and doubts. We are here to answer and guide those.

WHY SHOULD I GO?


  • International Orientation is designed to serve the needs of incoming international students, missionary kids and third culture kids as they transition into "a new world".
  • The new students will have a chance to meet peers who are currently at Taylor that have had experiences that the new students will experience.
  • The current international students are instrumental in welcoming the new students to campus and helping them get settled because they have been through all that process and are capable of helping you more than anyone!

WHAT WILL I DO?

The schedule below is just a draft of some of the things you will be doing during International Orientation and it can be subject to slight changes.
