All incoming international undergraduate, exchange, transfer, and graduate students will be required to participate in a series of one-hour Life@Michigan Tech workshops during Track A of the spring semester. This series was developed to assist international students adjust to Michigan Tech’s academic and social community. These workshops are non-credit bearing and will not be listed on class schedules. Two different sections are open and students should sign up during their international student orientation Rights & Responsibilities session on Sunday, January 8, 2017.
The Life@ Michigan Tech workshops were piloted this past Fall with the encouragement of the Board of Trustees and support from a grant from the State of Michigan. The pre-to-post assessment surveys show a promising increase in all areas from students’ knowledge of services available and awareness of emergency/safety resources to successful adjustment to campus culture.
Please feel free to forward any questions from students to firstname.lastname@example.org.
