FSU International Student Maximizes Time on Campus
FSU Special Academic Programs (SAP) international student Jingyi Situ has maximized her time on FSU’s campus by getting involved with student organizations, clubs, and an on-campus internship.
Situ – Management Information System (MIS) major at Capital University of Economics and Business in Beijing, China – is the CGE's Global Exchanges Intern; a member of a professional business fraternity, Alpha Kappa Psi; and a member of the FSU Cybersecurity Club.
“My motto is ‘try or die.’ I like challenges,” said Situ. “I am always interested in trying new things. I won’t give up until I achieve my goals, even if there are challenges along the way. Nothing is impossible if you work hard.”
Situ said she began her year at FSU with three goals in mind: get involved on campus, identify areas for improvement and work on them, and pick an area of concentration for future study. Becoming a member of Alpha Kappa Psi has helped Situ grow professionally through workshops the organization offers and encouragement to take advantage of Career Center offerings, such as Seminole Futures. Additionally, the FSU Cybersecurity Club helped Situ determine that she would like to focus on that area of study within her field.
SAP allows seniors from select international institutions to study at FSU for two semesters as non-degree students during their senior year. Highly qualified candidates have the opportunity to remain at FSU as degree-seeking students upon acceptance into a graduate degree program. For more information about the program, visit the website.
