 Fall 2022 ISO Mentors

ISO Mentors are returning international and globally-minded students who serve as orientation leaders and role models to help with your transition to CC and help prepare you for what's ahead. ISO Mentors begin communicating with our new international students before they arrive on campus, support you during ISO, and continue throughout the fall semester by organizing events and serving as a resource for questions about U.S. culture and academic life at CC.

Meet your ISO Mentors here:  Coming Soon!
