International Orientation: Open Hands

August 22-24, 2023

We are so excited that you are joining us for International Orientation! We look forward to meeting and serving you in August! International Orientation (IO) is designed for our incoming International Students (F-1 Visa), Missionary Kids (MK), and Third Culture Kids (TCK), to help with the entry and transition into a different country and culture as you prepare for your time at Taylor University.

You will have the opportunity to not only meet your classmates, but also upperclassmen that have volunteered their energy and time to welcome you into this space. It is our hope and prayer that during this time, you will with open hands begin to develop friendships with your peers and draw closer to the One who has called each of you to Taylor University.

During IO, you will have the opportunity to:

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