Dear future Wheeling Jesuit Students,
We, the Wheeling Jesuit community, have been preparing for your arrival. We hope that you enjoy your time and experiences here and that you will come to consider the city of Wheeling and Wheeling Jesuit your home. Studying in a new country can be intimidating; you may be nervous to leave your family, friends, school, and life that you know to journey to a new country to study and live. We hope that you are also excited about the opportunities to learn, experience a new culture, and meet new people.
Currently, over 100 international students and scholars are present at Wheeling Jesuit University. The International Student Office works closely with faculty, staff, campus organizations and community groups to ensure that international students, faculty, and their families have the greatest opportunity to achieve their academic and personal goals. The International Student Office serves as the focal point on campus that deals with the unique needs, questions and concerns of those who come to Wheeling Jesuit University from abroad. Wheeling Jesuit honors these cultures annually at the campus-wide Culture Fest, an event where students share their heritage and customs with peers, faculty and the local community.
We hope that you will use the International Students Office to make Wheeling Jesuit your new home. We are excited to meet you and welcome you to the Wheeling Jesuit family!
