Faculty member participates in local high school's diversity day event

Stephanie Unger, member of the nursing faculty at Penn State Mont Alto, participated in Shippensburg High School's Diversity Day events on Feb. 3. A native of Thailand, Unger spoke to students about Thai culture.

Unger also advises Mont Alto's first-ever class of true international students this year. Having once been an international student herself, she is intricately aware of the unique challenges faced by students whose first language is something other than English. In addition, international students adjust to differences in educational structures and expectations, foods, and everyday customs. Mont Alto's international students (here on student visas) hail from China, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong, Tawian, Bangladesh and the United Arab Emirites.
