Orientation is required for all new international students and is offered the week prior to classes beginning in the Spring, Summer and Fall terms. Orientation is a wonderful opportunity to meet other new students, gain an overview of Kirkwood services and resources available, and prepare for a successful student experience!
Kirkwood Community College International Programs selects a spotlight country for each month to be featured on campus as a Global Spotlight. Students are encouraged to volunteer their country for the spotlight. Those who volunteer for this program have the opportunity to decorate the display case outside of the International Programs office with items reflecting their culture and country for one month. In addition, a Global Spotlight presentation will be scheduled on campus so that the volunteer students have the opportunity to provide an hour-long presentation/
demonstration/etc. about their country to the general Kirkwood campus community. These events are festive and allow for intercultural sharing and an opportunity for all of us at Kirkwood to learn about cultures around the world.
