With over 1 million international students who came to study in the US last year, several US universities started a #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign back in November to reach a global student community.
The #YouAreWelcomeHere campaign encourages universities around the US and globally to create and share their own videos in which the university faculty and students share their welcoming messages for international students. Study Group’s original video (below) includes warm messages from six different universities around the US – James Madison University, Roosevelt University, University of Vermont, Merrimack College, Long Island University in Brooklyn and the City College of New York.
Since the beginning of the campaign many US universities (over 25!), global educational institutions and even single individuals, students, educational community advocates and others have created and shared their own welcoming videos for all international students. So feel free to do the same: join the movement and share your videos on social using hashtag #YouAreWelcomeHere!
