International Peer Guides 2015-2016: 

Welcome aboard!

King's International hosted over 30 new and returning Peer Guides for training in preparation for the 2015/16 academic year. The King's International Peer Guide Program is designed to assist international and exchange students new to King's with adjustment to university culture and Canadian life. This voluntary program matches new international students with returning King's students. International students and Peer Guides benefit from this opportunity by developing cross-cultural skills and understanding as well as creating diverse friendship networks.


The event began with introductions and team-building activities where the seeds of many deep and life-long friendships were formed. The Peer Guides also participated in role play activities where they acted out challenging intercultural scenarios, identified the issues, and created strategies to solve them. All of the scenarios required the Peer Guides to draw on intercultural theories on cultural transitions and cross-cultural communication skills, which they were presented with during their training.  As well, returning and graduating Peer Guides shared their stories and answered questions about their rewarding and challenging experiences as guides.


King's International is excited for the new generation of Peer Guides to step forward and welcome new international and exchange students into the fabric of the King's community in the Fall of 2015!
