Join Trine University for celebration of international study program

The offices of Study Abroad and International Community Services will be celebrating International Education Week with a “Campus Specific With Global Perspective Event” on Tuesday.

Students from the Trine Study Abroad Club will share their reasoning behind studying abroad and how they are preparing for their travels. Returning Study Abroad students will share their experiences as well.

This free event will also feature guest speaker John Shannon, Ph.D., vice president for Academic Affairs, and presentations from the directors of Study Abroad and the International Community Services.

Another highlight of this event will involve international students sharing their personal, cultural, academic and overall life experiences. After the event, international students and the Study Abroad Club will have informational tables outside of Fabiani Theatre.

This year, 150 international students representing 16 countries are enrolled at Trine.

International Education week is celebrated worldwide and signifies diversity in education. According to the U.S. Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, this week aims to “promote programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.”

This free event will take place at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 18, in Fabiani Theatre in Rick L. and Vicki L. James University Center. Refreshments will follow outside of the theatre. Everyone is invited to attend.
