INTO North America announces new US university partner

15 Nov 2012 Into Marshall University Students Large

The new joint venture, INTO Marshall University, will enhance the university's already established international student programs and provide a richer international experience for both the university community and wider community of Huntington.

Marshall is INTO's fourth university partner in the United States, joining Oregon State University, University of South Florida and Colorado State University.

"Today we celebrate the start of a program that truly will internationalize Marshall University and the greater Huntington community," said Dr. Stephen J. Kopp, president of Marshall. "Our plan is very progressive and, in many ways, groundbreaking because of what it will do for our students, our university and our state."

The partnership officially launched this week with Marshall welcoming more than 60 INTO staff and education counselors from 22 countries including China, Brazil, Kazakhstan, Spain, Ukraine and Indonesia.  

Guests on the Marshall "familiarization" trip were treated to a variety of activities including a visit to the West Virginia's New River Gorge National Park featuring one of the oldest rivers in the US and also cheered on the Marshall football team at their final home game.  

Attendees also spent a full day with university academic leadership learning about Marshall's extensive undergraduate and graduate programs and the many resources and support services that will be available to international students to accelerate their success.

"The visit this week to Marshall has given us all an intimate understanding of everything that this great university and the welcoming town of Huntington have to offer to all students, domestic and international alike. We are confident INTO Marshall students will immediately feel right at home here," said David Stremba, Managing Director, INTO North America. 

INTO Marshall's first student intake will be in August 2013. Students will be able to choose from a variety of undergraduate and graduate academic Pathway programs including business, engineering, science and technology, fine arts and kinesiology, as well as various English language programs.
