A group of Japanese college students will be making Wright State University and Ohio their home for three weeks as part of an international exchange program.
The 2013 Wright State University-KAKE Educational Institute Exchange Program features students from Okayama University of Science in Japan.
It is Wright State’s oldest international institutional partnership, with the university exchanging students with the group for more than 25 years.
“This is an opportunity for college students from Japan to experience an enriching program while gaining a greater understanding of Ohio and American culture,” said Michelle Streeter-Ferrari, director of Wright State’s University Center for International Education.
The program will include a tour of Wright State, English language and culture classes and a science presentation. The students will also visit the National Museum of the United States Air Force, Sunwatch Indian Village/Archaeological Park, the Ohio Caverns, the Center of Science and Industry in Columbus, Jungle Jim’s international market and Young’s Jersey Dairy.
The program runs from Aug. 14 through Sept. 4.
