SUNY Plattsburgh goes global

Posted: Updated:

A recent event aimed to bring countries from around the world to Plattsburgh State.

Last Thursday was the first Global Education EXPO at SUNY Plattsburgh. The event celebrates the university's cultural diversity.

The EXPO featured food, drinks and music from different areas of the globe. Internships and study abroad opportunities were presented to students by the school's Global Education staff.

"This is the first annual GEO EXPO where we combine international students, study abroad students, and faculty and staff. In the past we've done smaller scale events and every year we do a study abroad fair as well. But we really wanted to do something different and much more inclusive to celebrate everything international on campus," said Jamie Winters of SUNY Plattsburgh.

Plattsburgh State's Global Education Office hosts other campus events, celebrating the many cultures that make up Plattsburgh's community.
