First Year Experience

We would like to invite you to your First Year Experience! The experience will include everything from New Student Orientation to monthly events, all of which will be led by ISU Emissaries.

What is an Emissary?

We're so glad you asked! We are a committed group of ISU students with the common goal of making your First Year Experience the best it could possibly be. As Emissaries, we are a resource on campus specifically here for your benefit. We will start helping you throughout the summer during our monthly phone calls to you. We will be able to give you updates about important events and academic information, as well as answer any questions you may have about your first year here at ISU. To add some more fun into your year, we will also host a variety of monthly events during the school year that are designed to enhance your first year, help you make connections that will last a lifetime, and build a strong foundation of Bengal Pride.
