Last week, students, faculty and staff began the summer 2018 semester at the IECP after a very short break from the spring term. The IECP welcomed new students hailing from India, Japan, Russia and Saudi Arabia, who join returning students from Brazil, China, Kuwait, and Saudi Arabia.
Since summer semester is only ten weeks long, classes have hit the ground running! Pictured above are students from Jackie Gianico’s Academic Interactions class who just completed a “Three Things I Want You to Know about my Country” presentation, created by their Grammar for Interactions teacher, Elliot Hirschon. Students enjoyed hearing from their classmates and engaged in interesting and often humorous conversations about cultural differences.
After a long winter, Penn State’s campus is finally green and lush and playing host to summer camps, school groups, and of course the international students of the IECP. We hope you can find the time to enjoy a walk through campus; summer is a beautiful time of year at University Park. If you haven’t yet, we recommend taking a midday stroll to the duck pond located near the Hintz Family Alumni Center building.
Have a great summer everyone!
