CGE Welcomes
New International Students

Florida State University’s Center for Global Engagement welcomed more than 440 new international students from 40 countries to campus this fall.

FSU’s incoming international students include 169 undergraduate students and 272 graduate students, making FSU’s total population of international students over 2,400 from more than 120 different countries and areas.

“I found one of the most welcoming groups of people when I arrived at FSU, and it has been great to feel the same way while being around classmates, faculty, and staff from each section of the University,” said Jorge Roberto Maldonado Galiano, new international student from Ecuador pursuing a master’s degree in computer science. “By being part of FSU as a graduate student, I look forward to gaining valuable skills in my field of study and developing a solid knowledge base that I can use in the future.”
