Bloomfield welcomes international students with Orientation Breakfast

For the first time in its history, Bloomfield’s International Students Program welcomed returning and incoming students from all corners of the world to their new educational home with an Orientation Breakfast Tuesday, Aug. 27.

The event welcomed 75 new students into the fold for the 2013-2014 academic year, bringing the total number of international students at the institution to 145. Attendees were treated to a morning meal and remarks from Bloomfield President Richard Levao, Vice President of Enrollment Management Adam Castro, and International Admission and Student Services Coordinator Jamilah Moudiab, as well as educational presentations designed to help ease the transition to their new institution.

“We are extremely grateful to President Levao, Adam Castro, Dean Roberts, Student Health Services and our Media Center for helping us make this a special event for our international students,” Moudiab said of the day’s festivities. “Our international student population is ever-growing here at Bloomfield, and we are very appreciative of all the wonderful students we have from all parts of the world.”

Founded in 2003, the International Students Program is comprised of students hailing from 34 countries, with nations such as France, China, Brazil and the Czech Republic represented. With the emergence of globalization in the field of higher education, Bloomfield has made significant strides in transforming the institution into a global academic destination.

"Our international students have become an immensely important part of the fabric of our institution, so it is great to be able to officially welcome them to Bloomfield with this type of event,” Castro noted. “It is extremely exciting to see students from all over the world want to be a part of our diverse community. We will continue to make a concerted effort to further our global reach as an institution, and provide our students from abroad with a world-class educational experience."
