This fall 2012 semester, we are welcoming a number of international students to the campus. The students represent a diverse range of countries including Nigeria, Dominica, Canada, China, Morocco, Russia, Germany, Belgium, Netherlands, and Venezuela. Five new students and four returning students are here to learn more about business from an American perspective. While attending Nichols, the international students hope to benefit not only academically but also to become immersed in on-campus living and the local culture. As an added advantage, Nichols students gain from interacting with our international students both interpersonally and in the classroom. In the future, our goal is to see even more international students come to Nichols and to send more of our students to study abroad.
