International Student Welcome - Des Plaines, IL
Help us welcome international students coming to study at Michigan Tech!
The Michigan Tech International Programs and Services office has partnered up with the Chicago Alumni Chapter to welcome new international students to the University!
Approximately 150-200 incoming international students will travel through O’Hare Airport on August 20 and August 22. The University has arranged for buses to provide transport for the students from Chicago to Houghton, but there are opportunities for you to help these new Huskies along on their journey!
How can you help?
• Volunteer for the day and participate with others as a group of local alumni helping the students feel welcome. If you are unable to donate a full day, stop by for an hour or two. (Don’t forget to wear your Michigan Tech gear!)
• Donate money towards food, snacks, and water for the students.
• Post a welcome message through social media.
If you can't be there in person and want to contribute, monetary donations toward food are also welcome and can be made online here.
