Join us in celebrating the contributions of Wesley’s international community during the 2019 International Education Week celebration, November 18 -22, 2019, across campus. Programs will include:
Building a Collective International Story – An interactive exhibit.
Narthex, Monday, November 18 – Friday, November 22, 2019
Often when we refer to “international students” at Wesley, we are specifically referring to those students who come in with a nonimmigrant visa stamp in their passports. But Wesley’s international community extends much broader than F-1 visa holders. It includes students, faculty, and staff, who may be first or second generation immigrants, recently naturalized citizens–or in the process of becoming one, asylees or refugees, and even those with American citizenship from U.S. islands and territories with a culture all their own. Help us build our collective international story by stopping by the exhibit, placing your star on the map, and telling us a little about your international story.
