During orientation, you will attend workshops that will provide you with valuable information and facilitate your transition to Colorado College. ISO is designed to:

  • Present material, information, and resources which will help you better understand and navigate classroom expectations, transportation options, employment restrictions, and student health services
  • Cover cultural adjustment and coping skills
  • Present immigration policies and rules that affect your visa status
  • Offer campus tours, fun evening activities, personal connections and opportunities to make new friends, and learn what it means to be a CC student before the rest of the new students arrive on campus

Fall 2021 ISO Leaders

ISO Leaders 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 Leaders 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.
