International Education Week
Endicott takes part in the United States Department of State's International Education Week each November.
International Peer Mentor Program
The Peer Mentor Program at Endicott College is very helpful to newly arrived International Students. Upon arrival, each student is assigned a Peer Mentor, usually an upper class men who has returned from a study abroad experience, who will help the student in their adjustment to the campus and to the US. The Mentor will bring the student to shop for any necessities, have dinners periodically with the student and check in during the semester to make sure that everything is going well. During each semester, Mentors are asked to plan outings for all the newly arrived students to help them to get to know the area. Of course, the Mentors are always available for questions and concerns, any day! Students can apply to be an International Peer Mentor in April for the following academic year.
