UVI Students to participate in NSE Programs in Fall 2018

Nine UVI students on the Albert A. Sheen Campus on St. Croix will commence studies at other universities in Fall 2018 and Spring 2019 through the National Student Exchange Program (NSE). 

The National Student Exchange Program provides students with the opportunity to study at other institutions in the United States including Puerto Rico and Guam. Students learn about different cultures, different geographical locations, explore graduate school and employment options, enroll in courses not presently offered at UVI, expand their worldview, and experience personal growth and enrichment.

Patricia Towal, director of Counseling and Career Services and NSE coordinator on the Albert A. Sheen Campus says that study abroad programs offer students an amazing life-changing experience.

“Watching our students prepare to exchange and seeing the results when the students return is truly a thrilling experience,” said Towal. “Stepping out of their comfort zone brings so many growth benefits to our exchange students as they meet new experiences, new cultures, new people, and new challenges. Our students rise to the challenge brilliantly.”
