UNC Global hosted its annual welcome social for international students on August 19, an afternoon of music and ice cream at the FedEx Global Education Center.
The event was attended by more 500 students including new international undergraduate and graduate students, new international scholars, and returning and incoming study abroad exchange students.
“This is an event at which students have an opportunity to meet one another and make new friendships,” said Ron Strauss, chief international officer and executive vice provost. Strauss and other global education faculty and staff attended and welcomed the students to the event and campus.
The event was sponsored by International Student and Scholar Services, the Study Abroad Office and UNC Global, with refreshments from Ben & Jerry’s and music by the Blue Star Travelers.
