International Student Mentor (ISM) Program

ISMs is a student leader whose primary duties are to:

  1. assist Coe international student affairs and
  2. to support and guide new international student arrivals before and during International Student Orientation.

More specifically, ISMs help with arrivals, guide students around campus, are present for and actively helping during orientation sessions, and are on-call during the evenings for Coe international student affairs and new international students need. ISMs formal job begins the weekend before ISO and ends after the last event on that Friday. ISMs are able to move in early and can eat free in the cafeteria from Monday through Friday.

Both international and domestic students may apply to be an ISM for the upcoming fall ISO.

Feel free to ask previous leaders what their experience was like. And contact Anna Drexler, Director of International Student Affairs <> for any questions you might have about the fall 2022 application.
