Online Orientation for International Students
Michigan State University
Before launching their online, pre-arrival orientation, international students coming to Michigan State had no idea what to expect. Staff was relying on boring and text-heavy email to communicate with students while still in their home country. They found there was important information students needed before orientation started. Today, with the ability to reach students early in an interactive, online environment, presentations like “Understanding U.S. Culture” became more fun and engaging.
