International Student Orientation

August 17-21, 2014

Get ready for the Taylor University’s International Orientation 2014! 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!"
