welcome new international students
It has been an exciting and busy few weeks here at the OISS in preparation for all of our new international students. This semester we welcome approximately 70 new international students. This includes undergraduate exchange and transfer students, MBA exchange students and degree-seeking graduate students. Fifty of these students came from BC exchange partner schools. This is a record number of undergraduate exchange students coming for the spring semester.
On Friday, January 16th, the OISS hosted its spring orientation/welcome social for all new undergraduate exchange and transfer students. During the event, the international students were given the opportunity to meet their international assistants, listen to a panel discussion of returning international students, meet administrators from across campus and enjoy food and conversation with one another. Overall the orientation was a success. Again, to all new students, welcome to BC, and we hope that you enjoy your time here at
