Seasoned overseas travelers know the challenges faced when stepping off the plane in a new country. Signs and conversations are suddenly gibberish. A host of confusing customs redefine your every move. And, how will you even get to town from the airport? These challenges pose almost no problems for Michigan Technological University’s newest international students– all thanks to the efforts of the International Programs and Services’s arrivals program.
Under the Global Lansing workgroup partnership through the Lansing Economic Area Partnership, efforts to welcome international students and businesses will be conducted on a regional scale and strengthened with the help of many volunteers.
