Mizzou welcomed more than 200 new international undergraduate students from 24 different countries.
The international orientation took place from Aug. 15 to Aug. 17 and introduced the students to life at Mizzou. A shopping trip to Walmart on Tuesday ensured that each student gets a chance to buy every necessity he or she needs. Resource fair at Jesse Hall introduced students to different organizations on campus, and multiple workshops answered students’ questions about transportation and living in Columbia, Mo.
A picnic at the Stephen’s Lake Park capped off this year’s orientation and was filled with laughter, fun games, an abundance of pizza and snacks. Students from all over the world got a chance to meet each other as well as many American student volunteers. The students we talked to are excited to start their journey at Mizzou.
