Graduate School faculty and staff welcomed new students at two receptions on August 20. The International Students Orientation was attended by students from nine nations: Saudi Arabia, Ghana, China, Nepal, Afghanistan, Egypt, India, Nigeria and Spain. Both receptions offered an opportunity for newcomers to network with each other, meet faculty members, become familiar with the campus and generally get more comfortable with their new learning environment and its surroundings — plus take a few selfies!
