The world is at our door here at UGA! The University of Georgia's international community includes more than 2,000 international students and scholars from over 125 different countries. Well over half the students in our program are also from the 1040 window.
When a new student arrives at UGA, it can be difficult for them to get to know Americans in this community. Many international students, away from home and family for the first time, experience culture shock upon arrival. The food, customs, and language differ significantly from what they are used to in their home countries. American Christian students are needed to intentionally reach out to these students, even in the most practical ways. At Wesley the International Student Ministry provides an amazing way to reach the nations in our own backyard!
