Snow College Celebrates International Education Week

With record-breaking international student enrollment numbers, the school had a lot to celebrate

Center for Globale Engagement

November 23, 2022 – Ephraim, UT – As the nation celebrated International Education Week, the Snow College Center for Global Engagement announced record enrollment numbers. With 293 international students representing 48 countries around the globe, the school is pleased at the rich diversity and culture these students bring to campus.

To celebrate, the Center for Global Engagement (CGE) hosted a week of activities designed to allow the students showcase their cultures and also spread awareness of the opportunities available for all students. From cultural celebrations and country fairs to seminars on study abroad opportunities, the week was jam-packed with festivities.

When looking at everything Snow has to offer, it’s easy to see why it’s become such a popular pick for international students. The school is ranked as the #1 safest school in Utah, which is a comforting fact for parents who are sending their students abroad. The small-town life is also a huge selling point. Students can more easily adapt to American culture at Snow before transferring to a larger university to complete their education. The CGE also offers travel programs and other activities to help students get off campus and see the region.

Durli Ahojayeva of Turkmenistan is in her fifth year at Snow and is studying software engineering. Durli shared her love of Snow College when she said, “People are very welcoming here, and the professors are willing to help at any time.” Zayd Dridi of Tunisia explained that “At Snow, you’re not just a number. Your professors know you by name and are concerned about your success.”

Becky Adams, an international advisor in the CGE, is excited about the growth in the international program. She said, “I love when I can see a student be successful and grow. It’s rewarding to see not only what they do here, but to also hear about their accomplishments after they leave Snow. I truly believe that a Snow College education is a great springboard to help international students achieve their dreams.”
