This fall the Center for Global Engagement welcomed 400 new international students to the FSU campus, including 131 doctoral students, 185 master’s degree students and 85 undergraduate students. Since August we have also welcomed 51 scholars to the FSU campus. Our Weeks of Welcome for international students were filled with orientation sessions, academic workshops, and social/cultural programs to assist students as they got to know FSU, the CGE, and Tallahassee.
International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. This joint initiative of the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Education promotes programs that prepare Americans for a global environment and attract future leaders from abroad to study, learn, and exchange experiences in the United States.
