Eight students who were recipients of Silliman University (SU)’s foreign exchange scholarship last school year will hold the first exchange student forum on Jan. 14 at the Audio-Visual Theater.
The exchange students who will be speaking at the forum are Allison Cruyff Ladero from International Christian University (ICU), Japan; Solimar De Castro and Ma. Faye Eloise Duran from Shikoku Gakuin University, Japan; Stephanie Ria Colinco and Val Amiel Vestil from Hannam University (HNU), South Korea; and Haragel Basong, Achilles Isidore Israel, and Lj Zaphan Lamboloto from Universitas Kristen Satya Wacana, Indonesia.
The exchange students will share their experiences in Japan, South Korea, and Indonesia through photos and videos during the forum entitled “Lost in Translation: Tales of an Exchange Student.”
Part of the forum is a question and answer portion for those who are interested to become exchange students in the next school year.
Application for exchange student scholarship for SY2017-2018 has started and will end on February 3, 2017.
Regular junior students who have had at least four semesters in the SU are encouraged to apply as exchange students to ICU and Sophia University in Japan, HNU in South Korea, and Université Catholique de Lille, a university in France which partnered with SU last year.
