Hey, y'all! 20 Incheon National University students arrived safely at Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport at 9:50p.m. on July 2. With the help of Lander's international students from China, Kelvin and Li, students could fit their heavy suitcases into the shuttle trunk without any hustle and bustle. On the way to Lander University, the visitors enjoyed homemade Kimbob (Korean sushi rolls) and blueberry muffins made by Mrs. Gemma Park, the wife of Dr. Jae Park, Dean for International Programs. After getting through the 16-hour-long flight from Korea, the students looked excited and Lander staff were very happy to see their smiley faces.
#First meal at University Dining Hall
Our students were very punctual. Despite jet-lag, they all showed up on time for lunch and they had the very first meal at the Lander University Dining Hall. They seemed to enjoy American food ranging from pizza to Mexican food. Mrs. Margie Ball, First Lady of Lander University appeared at the lunch to give warm welcome to the guests from Korea.
#Welcoming Ceremony & Orientation
Welcoming Ceremony and orientation were followed by lunch. University officials and program instructors came out to welcome our 20 international guests. President Daniel Ball greeted each individual student by shaking hands one by one and made welcoming remarks. Dr. Ball mentioned, "Big cities like New York, Sanfrancisco and LA are not America. Greenwood is the best place to experience real American culture and people." Students laughed a lot at his comment and were excited about their one-month-long journey at Lander University.
