CWU Officially Welcomes International Students and Scholars

About 450 international students and scholars from 38 countries worldwide are now in Ellensburg for fall quarter classes at Central Washington University.

A large number of them were on hand to be officially welcomed recently by CWU Provost and Vice-President for Academic and Student Life Marilyn Levine and Sherri Fujita, director, University English as a Second Language at the annual International Students’ Welcome Dinner.

Sponsored by the CWU Office of International Studies and Programs (OISP), it is designed to make the students and scholars feel more at home. Held in the Sue Lombard Dining Room it provided them with an opportunity enjoy pizza and pasta, and music from a variety of countries.

It also allowed them to renew acquaintances and make new connections, including with campus and Ellensburg community members.

“We’re now interest in helping our international guests extend their community connections,” says Ann Radwan, OISP executive director.

Those who would like to become acquainted with one or more of the visiting students or scholars, or have them over for an upcoming holiday meal or other gathering, can contact the OISP office (, 509-963-3612) for additional information.

Along with those enrolled at other university campuses around the state, CWU has more than 500 international students and scholars participating in fall quarter classes.
