For iBuddy Mentors

Mentoring is among the most powerful ways to make a difference! OISS is looking for current students, international and domestic, to serve as mentors to the incoming class of international Blue Hens. We need your help to make them feel welcome and included in our community. OISS and the iBuddy council members will train and support new mentors to help connect incoming international students with the knowledge and resources to navigate life in the U.S. and on campus.
