International Peer Orientation Leaders (iPOL)

For the orientation program, all international students will be placed into small groups led by an International Peer Orientation Leader (iPOL). iPOLs are current Miami University students who can answer questions about campus life, academics, transitioning to Miami, and many other topics. Feel free to ask the iPOLs any questions you have about being a student! We hope that you have a great orientation experience and are interested in applying to be an iPOL in the future.

Fall 2021 Orientation iPOL Team will be announced soon.

Cecelia Johanni

Hi everyone, my name is Cecelia Johanni. I'm from Cleveland, Ohio. I'm a rising junior studying strategic communication with a co-major in global & intercultural studies. One day, I hope to do public relations work for a non-profit organization. On campus, I'm involved in Alpha Phi Omega which is a national service fraternity. Most of my favorite memories at Miami involve working on community service projects with the friends I've met through this organization. My advice to new students is to get involved on campus and try new things!

Hello new Miamians! My name is Mustaquim, you pronounce it as Moos-tah-kim. I am a graduate student from the department of Mathematics. My home country is Bangladesh which is only 8000 miles away from Oxford. My favorite pastime is reading, cycling, hiking, and studying more math. There is no place like Miami University and you are going to have the time of your life here. Welcome to "the most beautiful campus that there ever was".
