Greetings from the Assistant Director for the Office of Intercultural & International Life

The decision to study in a foreign country can be exciting and at the same time overwhelming! Adjusting to a new educational environment in another country presents many challenges both to students and to their parents. As assistant director of the Office of Intercultural & International Life it is my pleasure to assist international students in their transition to life at Carleton and to life in the United States.

I help international students integrate into all aspects of college life, and I act as liaison and advocate with departmental, administrative and governmental offices. I provide advice on academic, financial, legal and personal matters. I organize the international student orientation and I am responsible for cultural programming.

 I would be very glad to answer any questions you and your family might have about Carleton College, please feel free to contact me at

I hope you will consider joining our growing international family at Carleton College! I look forward to meeting you on campus!
