iCats is a mentoring program for first-year, exchange, and transfer international students entering the Lindner College of Business. iCats offers social, academic, and educational support through a yearlong peer advising program.

The iCats program assists incoming international students with the transition to college life by providing:

  • Pre-arrival communication
  • International orientation
  • Yearlong peer mentoring
  • Campus life and professional events
  • Social gatherings

From the minute international students are accepted into the Lindner College of Business they will have access to a peer group of top-level undergraduate students, selected through a highly competitive interview and application process. The aim of iCats is to enhance the international student experience at the University of Cincinnati through personal interaction in an atmosphere of mutual respect of cultural differences.
