A Look Back at International Education Month

International Education Month ended last week, bringing together the university community in over 30 events to celebrate our global connections. The month highlighted the diverse backgrounds of our NC State and local communities, the research and study abroad experiences of our students and faculty, and future opportunities for international learning. 

Check out moments from a few featured events:

Global Tea and Coffee

Held for the first time at Fountain Dining Hall, attendees traveled from table to table to sample food and drink from countries from around the world. 

Naturalization Ceremony

We were proud to recognize 60 of North Carolina’s newest candidates for U.S. citizenship during a naturalization ceremony in Talley Student Union. The new citizens represented more than 30 countries.

 

Think and Do in 2

Students had just two minutes and six personal photos to share their powerful international experiences during a storytelling competition in this annual event. International studies major Shawn Fredericks was the competition winner; he spoke about his study abroad experience during a summer program in Ghana.
