MCCC's International Students Reach Out During International Education Week in November

11-23-09

A series of events during International Education Week highlighted Mercer's diverse international student population and the many community outreach efforts of the International Student Organization (ISO).

In the fall 2009 semester, MCCC enrolled 59 new international (F-1) students, bringing the total number to 203. The top five countries represented by these students are South Korea, Poland, India, China and Brazil. The most popular programs chosen by them are Business Administration, Liberal Arts, Hotel Restaurant and Institution Management, Education and Biology.

After raising more than $600 through three events -- a Costume Dinner Dance, the ISO Bowling Fundraiser Night, and the ISO Bake Sale, the group purchased food items from the Womanspace Wish List. They delivered 72 bags of food to the charity on Nov. 12.

On Nov. 17 Mercer's international students participated in a Multi-Cultural Festival on the West Windsor campus, showcasing their talents, music, cultures, and backgrounds.

On Nov. 18 the students visited Pace Charter School in Hamilton, where they read poems from their countries of origin to students in two third-grade classes. "The children really enjoyed themselves," said Amy Immordino, program coordinator and club advisor. "They had so many questions to ask our students."
