Mexican Students Arrive on Campus


Beginning July 24th through August 20th, Western New England University will welcome 25 Mexican students under the support of the U.S. Department of State 100,000 Strong in the Americas, and the complementary Mexican Ministry of Education Proyecta 100,000 initiatives. 

Western New England University was selected as a host location for the joint U.S./Mexican higher education programs with the assistance of Bridge Pathways, the University’s international ESL partner. Over the next four weeks, the Mexican students will be living in Commonwealth Hall, dining in the St. Germain Campus Center, and receiving instruction in Herman Hall by ESL faculty and guest speakers. They will also be touring the region, including Boston and other locations.

On Monday July 25, the Mexican students will have an opportunity to meet some of the University staff and faculty during a welcome picnic at the St. Germain Campus Center Portico from noon to 1:30 p.m.
