Please note that the application deadline for the Fall 2016 cycle has passed.
However, hope is not lost! If you will be in the Washington DC area this summer, and would like the chance to reach out to new students by e-mail, we would love to have you participate in a Email Campaign! Doing so will also put you in consideration for participation in the Fall 2016 International Orientation, in case one of our current Orientation Leaders has an emergency and has to drop out.
