What we do... Ladder provides 1-on-1 guidance and support for new first-year and transfer international students (F-1 visa, MK and TCK).  Ladder leaders help new students navigate their transition to Wheaton by building friendships with them and making connections to people and resources on campus.  While enjoying coffee dates and movie nights with new students, the Ladder team comes together to support one another and make fun memories.  You can learn more about the Ladder Leaders by checking out their Instagram page!
