NSU welcomes international students

Northwestern State University’s International Student Resource Center hosted a reception for new and returning international students Sept. 6. NSU has more than 130 international students from around the globe, the result of agreements with other institutions that promote long- and short-term exchange opportunities, dual enrollment and study collaborations. The ISRC opened last year to help students navigate their new environment and become more involved with student life. The ISRC also plans cultural excursions for the international students as well as activities to engage with local residents and can provide information to American students interested in studying abroad.
