Local Indian community supports international students at Fayette

December 18, 2009

Members of the Uniontown Indian community joined together to make a gift of nearly $1,700 to Penn State Fayette, The Eberly Campus, in support of the campus' international students. The campus was designated an "International Campus" by Penn State earlier this year and is currently home to eight students from countries around the world, including China, Dubai, India, Korea and Morocco. The presence of international students at the campus provides Penn State Fayette and the local community with a variety of opportunities for cross-cultural learning experiences. For example, one international student plays on the men’s basketball team, another is a peer tutor in math at the Teaching and Learning Center, and yet another works at the campus’ IT Help Desk assisting students with computer problems. On behalf of the Indian community, Mani Balu and Shantha Balu presented the gift on Dec. 15, to Penn State Fayette Chancellor Emmanuel I. Osagie.
