Session Proposal: FIUTS International Student Orientation (2014)

Join FIUTS in welcoming new international students to the UW! Submit an information session proposal for Fall 2014 FIUTS Orientation.

You are invited to join the Foundation for International Understanding Through Students (FIUTS) in welcoming over 2,000 new international students to the University of Washington! 

FIUTS International Student Orientation
(September 10-19, 2014) is a 10-day program for international undergraduate, graduate, and exchange students and scholars beginning their studies at the UW. The FIUTS Orientation program includes social events and informational sessions designed to introduce new students to important resources on and off campus, make friendships, explore our city, and support a smooth transition to the UW community.

Information Sessions
From Tuesday, September 16th through Friday, September 19th, over 40 information sessions will be offered to new international students on a variety of topics. Sessions take place in the HUB, with two to three sessions running concurrently and each session lasting 50 minutes. Attendance usually ranges from 25-150 students per session. This year, sessions will be offered in the six themes: 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! Please submit by June 13.

Orientation sessions run concurrently - with as many as 3 or 4 offered at the same time. Would you be willing to offer your session more than once to accommodate student interest throughout the week?
Would your session best be hosted in your own space (ie. library resources, IMA tour, etc.), rather than in the HUB? If you can offer an alternate meeting place, where is it and how may students can you accommodate?

Thank you for proposing a session for FIUTS International Student Orientation. Information sessions will be chosen by a panel of FIUTS staff and students. Upon proposal review, FIUTS may make recommended changes to session content and/or suggest collaboration among presenters proposing similar session content. Selected presenters will be notified and scheduled in July. If you have any questions, please contact Brianna Mercker, FIUTS Manager of Student Programs.

Please note: Presenters are not compensated, however they are welcome to distribute flyers, coupons, samples, and other resources. No direct sales are allowed at Information Sessions.
