November is International Education Month at FSU!

Florida State University hosts over 2,000 international students from more than 130 countries. FSU Libraries seeks to serve all of the university’s international students and faculty and make them feel welcome. FSU Libraries’ International Scholar Special Interest Group strives to provide customized services and assistance for international students. We understand their unique challenges in and contributions to succeed in American classrooms and are eager to support them in their scholarly and instructional goals.

The welcome video above highlights FSU Libraries’ services and features interviews from international students expressing how they have used the Libraries at Florida State University. Here are some of their thoughts:

“You have access to any and every material you could possibly imagine or think of for your research”

Pietro Pesce (Graduate Instructor)

” It has such a diverse community in here, and it will welcome you like your family.”

Gizem Solmaz (Graduate Assistant)

This welcome video would not have been possible without the Center for Global Engagement (CGE), who recruited the international scholars featured in the video, as well as GEOSET, which produced it. We would also like to thank the following international scholars for appearing in the video: Doreen Addo-Yobo, Amy Ni, Pietro Pesce, Thais Pedrete, Gizem Solmaz, Masahiro Fukuda, Amber Noor Mustafa, Fatma Dossa, and Samy Simon. This video is hosted by the FSU Libraries’ International Scholar Special Interest Group.
