Marshall wraps up 3rd INTO familiarization visit

INTOGroup_November13INTO Marshall conducted its 3rd familiarization visit for 32 agents of INTO last week. These visits are conducted so that the agents are able to describe Marshall accurately to prospective international students.

Countries represented included China, South Korea, India, United Arab Emirates, the United Kingdom, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Russia, Taiwan, Japan and Colombia. These agents are “the best of the best,” meaning they sent the most students to the U.S. this past year of all of the INTO agents around the world.

While on the Huntington campus, they were able to celebrate Halloween with current international students Thursday evening, Oct. 31. On Friday, Nov. 1, they visited what will be the new Visual Arts Center and met with the academic deans to discuss the INTO pathway programs.

Then, on Saturday, Nov. 2, they visited the New River Gorge area for ziplining before shopping and dinner in Barboursville that evening.

The group visited Oregon State and Colorado State before coming to Marshall and left Sunday, Nov. 3, for the University of South Florida.
