      Today, Friday, August 29, marks the beginning of International Student Orientation (ISO) and Arch Orientation.

      International students from 26 countries around the world arrived on campus yesterday afternoon to meet their student leaders, move in to their dorms, have dinner and unwind. Over the next few days, international students will have the opportunity to learn more about Dean and the Franklin community by visiting a local bank, setting up telephone and internet services, shopping for necessities and enjoying evening activities with their new classmates. In general, ISO offers an opportunity for international students to become acquainted with Dean and the surrounding areas.

      Additionally, students from the Arch program also arrive on campus today and begin their orientation! Arch Orientation allows those participating in the Arch program to become better acquainted with others in the program and to learn more about the program itself. Over the next few days, students will sit through sessions such as Linking Your Academic and Campus Life, The Journey from High School to College and Writing Your Success Plan. Students will also participate in fun off-campus adventures and team-building exercises.

      Welcome to Dean – we are excited to have you here!
