Today’s episode is for all international students. We’ll be discussing strategies for ensuring success in your new home away from home, utilizing the resources available at the College, and hearing from personal experiences of a student just like you. 

Our episode host, Jennifer Cabell, will be talking to faculty member, Linda Traill, Success Advisor, Sanjay Pottinger, and international student, Gabriel Coelho.

The videos and podcasts were recorded when our campuses were open, prior to March 2020. Centennial College has transitioned to offering academic and co-curricular programs online. We value opportunities to engage with our students to support their learning and professional goals. For all Global experience programs, SaGE will offer Virtual Global Experience programming in the Fall 2020 and Winter 2021 semesters until travel advisories have been lifted and the Canadian government has deemed travel for education is safe. Students can still take part in fulfilling opportunities such as studying virtually with one of Centennial’s international exchange partners, participating in an applied research project with a partner in Morocco, or completing a virtual internship with agencies in Costa Rica and China.
