International Student News Archive

Each semester, the staff of the Office of Global Education publishes a weekly International Student e-Newsletter, which is circulated to our international student on Wednesday of each week. To keep our international student informed, the newsletter is packed with important immigration updates, student profiles, information about upcoming events and other internationally-related news and updates.

For the convenience of our international students, we have archived the following recent issues in case there is an important feature, article or information piece that you might have missed or which you wish to revisit. Enjoy!

If for any reason you are NOT receiving our weekly International Student e-Newsletter, please contact the Office at: isss@kent.edu.
