Fulbright Gateway Orientation 2013


Reno Fulbright Gateway Orientation 2013

August 12th – 16th, 2013

Hosted by the Northern Nevada International Center and the University of Nevada, Reno

The University of Nevada, Reno is again proud to host the Fulbright Gateway Orientation. The Gateway Orientation is intended to prepare visiting Foreign Fulbright graduate students for a new life as an international graduate student in the United States while providing exposure to American culture, including its academic, financial, and legal systems.

The Northern Nevada International Center has prepared an exciting agenda aimed to orient Fulbright graduate students with the complexities and nuances of living and studying in the United States.  Fulbright students will meet and network with local and state community leaders and spend orientation hours participating in valuable educational sessions, getting to know the university’s beautiful campus, and most importantly experience the various slices of American life through multiple excursions and activities. Finally, Fulbright participants have the chance to meet over 60 other incoming Fulbright students and scholars from all over the world.

Cultural activities range from meeting and speaking with Americans in their own homes, mingling with Rotarians and Fulbright alumni in the avenues full of 100-year old cars, learning from Native Americans at the Paiute Pyramid Lake Indian Reservation and finally enjoying the beautiful blue waters of Lake Tahoe on a dinner cruise as they offer spectacular and scenic views of lifetime.

We welcome the Fulbright Gateway Orientation students to enjoy this unique introduction to the United States through amazing hospitality and cultural experiences in Northern Nevada.

This activity is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs as part of its Fulbright Program, the U.S. government’s flagship international exchange program supported by the people of the United States and partner countries around the world.
