International Programs

International Assistant Program


The Purpose

The purpose of the International Assistant Program is to support international students in their transition and integration into the United States and Merrimack College. New international students (first year and transfer students) are paired with International Assistants (IA’s), who are Merrimack sophomores, juniors, and seniors. IA’s and international students connect formally or informally at least twice a month, and the program is aimed at allowing both students to increase cultural awareness and appreciation.
