Dear partners,

Warm Greetings from I-Shou University, Kaohsiung, Taiwan.

Embarking on a new academic journey can be both exciting and overwhelming, especially when navigating 

unfamiliar surroundings. To ease the transition, I-Shou University organized a dynamic 3-day Freshman 

Orientation Week for Overseas students, designed to help newbies familiarize themselves with 

the I-Shou environment.

The 3-day freshman orientation at I-Shou University was an exciting and immersive experience. 

We started by assisting students with ARC registration and residency paperwork. Additionally, we conducted 

a campus tour to help new students become familiar with the university’s facilities and resources, and they also 

had the chance to interact with International Student Representatives from various countries. 

The orientation concluded with interactive presentations that addressed most of the concerns and questions

students had about studying and living in Taiwan for the first time.

The orientation week at I-Shou University ended with a lively Pizza Party as well as welcoming speeches 

from the university President and the Dean of the Office of International & Cross-Strait Affairs (OICA)

creating a positive atmosphere for the new students. The party provided a chance for students to socialize,

make friends, and enjoy tasty food, marking the beginning of an exciting academic journey at I-Shou University.

As the new students embark on their academic journey at I-Shou University, may they be driven by a passion 

for learning, growth, and exploration. We wish them all the best as they embrace this new chapter in their lives, 

and we look forward to seeing their success and development.

Sincerely yours,

Dr. Chia-Kun Lee 李嘉崑 博士
