International Programs

International Orientation Leaders


The Purpose

The purpose of the International Orientation Program is to support international students in their transition and integration into the United States and Merrimack College. New international students (first year and transfer students) are paired with International Orientation Leaders (IOLs), who are Merrimack sophomores, juniors, and seniors. IOLs and international students connect formally or informally at least once a month, and the program is aimed at allowing both students to increase cultural awareness and appreciation.
