Kent State University provides its students with numerous study abroad opportunities to further their college careers and gain multicultural experience. The university’s program in Florence, Italy, is one of the most popular programs, offering inspiring personal, school and work experiences.
Summer 2014 will bring the debut of the Kent State Florence Summer Institute, as Kent State University expands its esteemed academic program in Italy. The new Florence Summer Institute will run four weeks, from May 29 to June 29, 2014, and will take place at the same facilities where Kent State study abroad programs are held during the school year.
Kent State University welcomed three international students to campus as part of the U.S. Department of State’s Edmund S. Muskie Graduate Fellowship Program. Madina Assangaliyeva from Kazakhstan, Nodirbek Ismailov from Kyrgyzstan and Kirill Zagurskiy from Russia have become part of the Kent State student body this fall semester.
Studying abroad not just for students
As part of Kent State University President Lester A. Lefton’s visions for the university, Kent State established an international exchange program with the University of Würzburg, Germany, to broaden students’ educational experiences.
Fourteen Kent State University students recently traveled to Germany for a three-week education-abroad program. The students gained cultural, democratic and social experiences while learning a little bit more about themselves in the process.
