Who said north is up? The world, like a ball, has no top. Top is a matter of habit. International education offers an opportunity to see things from a different point of view!
International Pre-Orientation Program [online]
IPOP is designed for students coming from outside of the U.S., as a supplement to New Student Orientation. The IPOP mentors, your amigos (which is Spanish for ‘friends’), and the OISA staff will be valuable companions on your Grinnell journey — even in the midst of a global pandemic. IPOP [online] 2020 will run from Monday, Sept. 21, through Friday, Oct. 30.
You can watch the prerecorded sessions each week, prior to your weekly synchronous meeting with your IPOP mentor and amigos. Watch your @grinnell.edu account for details.
