The James Madison University International Study Center just welcomed students from all over the world for the incoming class of Fall 2016.
The countries represented included students from Taiwan, China, Mexico, Vietnam, South Korea, Iran and many more.
JMU’s own LINK (Leaders for International Networking & Knowledge) students were on hand to guide students throughout the day.
Every year over 10 students from the LINK program around the world serve as links between the international community and JMU.
Students were welcomed and walked through the check-in process, had any questions answered by ISC staff and finally accompanied as they moved in to their respective housing. The International Study Center also hosted a lunch for students to get to know each other and prepare for a full week of activities during orientation.
Our Center Director, Adam Copeland, was so excited for the incoming class that he couldn't help but jump up and down!
During the week, international students will get know other students, tour the campus and set their schedules before starting classes.
