One of my favorite experiences at UWRF is working with new international students as an Orientation Transition Leader (OTL) for International Student Orientation. I applied to join the team because OTLs were the first people who welcomed me to campus when I arrived in the United States. Being an OTL was a wonderful opportunity to improve my leadership skills and challenge myself. Even though International Student Orientation only lasted 5 days, I had a lot of fun with the other OTLs and all of the new students we met!
Having a host family is another great experience I have had at UWRF! My host family has invites me to their home for dinner a lot and they are always there whenever I need help. They are welcoming and warm and I enjoy spending time with them. I have a host sister and a baby host brother who are very adorable. It has been a lot of fun to be part of their family and watch my host sister and brother grow up!
