Superstitious sailors may have once feared sailing over the edge of the world, but in today’s global society, Kennesaw State University students are embracing the notion that the world is flat and are packing their bags in record numbers to explore it.

“We want our students to be responsible global citizens who have the skills to interact effectively across cultures and in a global context,” Dan Paracka, director of the office of international services and programs, said.

Highlighting the university’s commitment to diversity, internationalization and global learning are more than 20 study abroad opportunities, in addition to internship opportunities abroad.

But you don’t have to leave campus to gain exposure to some of the benefits of traveling overseas.
The International Student Association involves international students in campus and community life by organizing group outings, hosting speakers and receptions, sponsoring the annual International Festival and the International Student Awards Banquet.

Other campus-based initiatives include the Campus Internationalization Mentors Program, the Model UN, Model AU and Model AL groups and Conversation Partners, which pair’s native and non-native English speakers.
