Independent Minds, Working Together

Information for Family & Friends

We are prepared to support new students who arrive on their own, but there will be several activities for family or friends who also make the trip. They will have the opportunity to meet our President, Dr. Grant H. Cornwell, as well as our Dean of Students, Director of Student Wellness, Chaplain and Director of Interfaith Campus Ministry, and other staff and faculty. Family and friends will also take a campus tour and enjoy a picnic with Friends of International Students (FIS) hosts.
