An Orientation Reunion

At the orientation of international students held August 27 and 28, 17 students joined us from Bolivia, China, Sweden, Canada, India, Pakistan, Bulgaria, Bermuda, Vietnam, and Japan.

At breakfast together the first morning, students went around the table introducing themselves and talking about experiences outside of the U.S.

As Wes McDonald (Canada) and Ben Wicks (Bermuda) listened to each other, they realized they had grown up together in Bermuda until Wes was about 8 or 9 years old and moved to Canada. They used to be close friends and were really surprised when they suddenly recognized each other as childhood friends!
