August 21-26, 2016

"The New International Orientation Team is preparing for your transition. During orientation we will spend a few days getting to know you and helping you feel more comfortable on campus. The team is praying for God’s provision and for your safe arrival. It will be exciting to see how you will bless the Taylor community over the next couple of years. In the meantime, we will be waiting to welcome you and make you feel at home as you come to join the Taylor family"

~ The Office of Intercultural Programs & The New International Orientation Team



International Student Orientation is designed to serve the needs of incoming international students, MKs, and TCKs. If you have spent a significant amount of time in a cross cultural setting, then you need to be here! You will have a chance to meet peers who were once in your very shoes. This group of students will welcome you to campus and help you get settled.

During International Student Orientation, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Be encouraged
  • Prepare for transition into college life
  • Participate in fun activities
  • Ask questions
  • Meet key administrators
  • Check out opportunities to work on campus
  • Open a local bank account
  • Shop
  • Build relationships with others

Students will be moved directly into their dorm room upon arrival. Students registered before August 1st will be charged $120. If registered after August 1st, they will be charged $140, which includes a registration fee, room and board and all activities at the orientation.
