New International Students Network at CGE Orientation

Florida State University’s Center for Global Engagement welcomes more than 110 new international students from 35 countries to campus this spring. To help new students succeed, CGE offered a luncheon and an orientation at The Globe where students met new friends and learned about FSU’s campus, resources, and maintaining their immigration status.

The luncheon provided new students with the opportunity to network with others from different disciplines. Shrikunj Patel, a graduate student from India studying electrical engineering, and Tsuyoshi Hara, a graduate student from Japan studying public administration, enjoyed lunch together while they talked about their future at FSU.

“I heard FSU was very good in the power energy field. I would like to enhance my career and my knowledge of different electrical engineering subjects, such as power control,” Patel said. “I’m very excited to become a Nole!”
