International Orientation Leaders

Volunteer for the ICC

Each semester, we recruit a team of International Orientation Leaders serve as supporters, facilitators and mentors to our new students, and help us welcome and connect them to the LSU community. As an orientation leader, you will be the face of LSU to our incoming students, and play a big role in helping them adjust to their new home. Your responsibilities will include participating in virtual town halls leading up to orientation, helping to in person orientation, and checking in regularly with your orientation group throughout the semester.  

Applications for our Spring 2023 cohort of International Orientation Leaders will open in October, 2022.
