Apply to be a G&P International Orientation Assistant with OISS this year!

Do you have fond memories of your OISS Orientation when you first arrived at Yale? Or perhaps you have ideas on how to improve the experience for incoming international students? If you answered yes to either of these questions, you should consider applying to be an Orientation Assistant this summer/early fall with OISS! 


G&P International Orientation Assistants (OA’s) will work in a team of two to assist the Office of International Students & Scholars (OISS) in welcoming and orienting newly-arrived incoming international students. The two main areas of responsibility are:

  1. Assisting the OISS staff during scheduled check-in sessions at OISS.
  2. Executing orientation programs and events for new graduate and professional students.

Those who serve as OA’s should enjoy meeting and orienting new people, and serving as spirited ambassadors for Yale and New Haven.  OAs will help set a welcoming tone by encouraging new arrivals and their accompanying families to explore and get to know the city and the university, and take part in orientation activities. Arrival and orientation weeks are the busiest times of the year, and it is essential that OA’s be self-directed, energetic and ready to jump in where needed.
