International Student Support
New international students are introduced to American culture through a fall orientation. We also try to place new international students with an American roommate to help make the adjustments needed to be successful while studying in America. In addition, our Student Support office can help connect students with tutors and English writing support, which also helps them be more successful in their academics.
There are plenty of ways to get involved with other international students, as well as community life in general. We encourage sightseeing and special events. Some of these have included hiking nearby Silver Creek Falls; exploring Oregon’s capital city of Salem; touring the scenic Columbia River Gorge, where the second tallest waterfall in the U.S. is located; and carving pumpkins at a Harvest Party. Our World Outreach Week and the International Fair are just a couple of ways we seek to see what God is doing around the world. Some international students have gone on missions trips to other countries.
To assist you and provide support during your studies at Corban, you can contact Dawnita Libby, Coordinator of Student Support Services.
