2009 PREPARE Volunteers Needed!

Sign up on line at:

Attention undergraduate students...Are you an international student who would like to welcome new international undergraduates to Cornell?  Or are you an American student who has had experience living in another culture and knows how it feels to dive into something so different? Then use your experience to help welcome new international students to Cornell!

The ISSO is looking for motivated and enthusiastic undergraduate volunteers for PREPARE 2009 in August!

PREPARE is a four-day, intensive pre-orientation program for new international undergraduates, where participants and volunteers have the opportunity to meet one another and help each other acclimate to life at Cornell. Over 200 new students, plus 50 volunteers will participate in PREPARE.

Volunteers are crucially important, and are expected to attend all events throughout the program. They may not be OCs for the university orientation, as conflicts of time and commitment often arise.

PREPARE will run from August 17-20, with a mandatory training session for volunteers on August 15-16. Volunteers who have on-campus assignments for the fall will be allowed to move into their rooms beginning on Friday, August 14.

Questions? Please contact Adriana at

Get involved! Help new international students! Have fun! Sign on to the PREPARE Team!
