Coffee and Conversation with Canadian Delegates

IMG 5292On the week of Friday, June 10th, International Focus had the honor of hosting a group of Canadian delegates. Through the International Visitors Leadership Program, this group’s focus was to research the American university system and systems for educational exchanges. A group of International Focus members had the opportunity to talk with the group of delegates over coffee. We started by discussing all of the Canadian influence in North Carolina, from how Canada is the number one trade partner with North Carolina to the Canadian presence in the Raleigh Symphony. As a part of the visit, the group toured the universities in the area. The biggest difference they noticed between Canadian universities and American universities was the resources available to students that aren’t directly related to academia. They also noted that the academic resources in American universities have a very high standard. “The technology [in NCSU’s Hunt Library] is absolutely amazing!” one member had to say.
