You are invited to join the Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FIUTS) in welcoming approximately 2,000 new international students to the University of Washington as an information session presenter this September!
FIUTS International Student Orientation is a 10-day program for international undergraduate, graduate, and exchange students and scholars beginning their studies at the UW. The orientation program includes social events and information sessions designed to introduce students to important resources on and off campus, make new friendships, explore our city, and support a smooth transition to the UW community.
From Monday, September 16th through Friday, September 20th, approximately 30 information sessions will be offered to new international students on a variety of topics. Sessions take place in the HUB, with two to three 50-minute sessions running concurrently. Attendance ranges from 25-150 students per session. This year, sessions will be offered in six thematic areas: Campus Resources, Seattle Community, American Culture, Jobs & Internships, Housing, and Health & Wellness. Sessions can be presented by multiple presenters – from campus and the community – and in various formats. We encourage collaborative, creative and interactive session proposals!
