Hi everyone! I am Yukii. I am a Graduate Assistant for International Summer Program Operation at the Office of International Education. This is my second year working for the program. 
I have received my Bachelor’s degree in Communication in Fall 2013. I am currently working on my Master’s degree in Instructional Design & Technology.
My primary task is to oversee the program from the office, and I team up with two Program Assistants (PAs) to make sure everyone’s needs are met. I am going to be taking care of planning and logistics, but I will also join you in some activities and trips.

I am excited to have you all this summer! See you soon!

Hello students!

My name is AJ and I am a Graduate Teaching Assistant for the Health and Physical Education/Recreation Department here at ESU. This summer will be my first experience with the program and I am very excited to be a part of it.

I received my Bachelor’s in Health Promotion in 2011 here at ESU and currently have only one semester remaining in my studies before receiving my Master’s Degree in Health and Physical Education. I will primarily be working one on one with the International Summer Program students in an effort to ease your transition into American culture while also facilitating several fun activities and trips throughout the summer.

I am very excited to work with everyone this summer! We are going to have a blast experiencing new things and people, I can’t wait.

Welcome to the ESU International Summer Program! My name is Toshi.

I graduated from ESU in December 2013 with a Bachelor’s degree in Music and I am now preparing for graduate studies in Choral Conducting.

As a program assistant, my task is to support aspects of your life during the program; developing your English skills, studying for academic classes, living in university dormitories, adjusting to the U.S. culture as well as building connections with the American community. As a student from Japan, I am delighted to share with you my experience in the U.S.

You will face some challenges during the program; however I am sure you will have a wonderful time and treasure memories that will stay with you for the rest of your life. I look forward to meeting you soon!
