NCAIE Conference – MARCH 2013
Norma presented with Amanda Mills, Assistant Director of UNC Chapel Hill's ISSS office, on "The First 30 Days: What does SEVIS reporting look like in your office?"
Mike coordinated an international student panel of UNCG and Elon University students. Entitled “Successes and Challenges of International Students: Straight from the Source!“ these five international students from China, Saudi Arabia, Bolivia and Vietnam shared with the audiences their actual university experiences. Three of these student panelists were Fatima (Saudi Arabia), Carla (Bolivia) and our own ISSS Programming Assistant, Junyi Hu (China).
Nor presented on the psychographics of international students for marketing and recruitment purposes and Angie presented with Sameer Tabbakh, PhD candidate and Founder/ex-President of Saudi Student Club at NC A&T, on finding the middle ground in understanding Middle Eastern students’ culture and traditions.
Congratulations to Tom Martinek, Jr. for being elected the State Representative for this year’s NAFSA Region VII conference. Tom addressed the audience during lunch break to promote and encourage participation in the upcoming student-led “Global Experience Conference” which will be held at UNCG on April 6, 2013. And, thank you to Pamela Harrod, our Director of International Admissions, who as an NCAIE Board member, was on site to ensure smooth flow of the day’s events and activities. Thank you all for your participation.
