The Swap Shop relies on donations from the LSU and Baton Rouge community. If you are interested in donating, you may drop off items at the ICC during office hours: Monday-Friday, 8am-4:30pm. If donations must be dropped off outside of these office hours, please place them in the front entrance courtyard. Please review the list of accepted donation items below:

International Orientation Leaders

Volunteer for the ICC

Each semester, we recruit a team of International Orientation Leaders to serve as supporters, facilitators, and mentors to our new students and to help us welcome and connect them to the LSU community. As an orientation leader, you will be the face of LSU to our incoming students, and you'll play a big role in helping them adjust to their new home. Your responsibilities will include participating in virtual town halls leading up to orientation, helping with in-person orientation, and checking in regularly with your orientation group throughout the semester.
