Message from the Vice President

When a student is in a foreign country, thousands of miles away from family and friends, he/she needs support, guidance and encouragement. I’m originally from Argentina, so I’ve experienced this myself. At Shorter, we take care of our international students; we are a big, international family that offers support and assistance to all.

Shorter continues to attract growing numbers of international students. The International Student Photo Gallery contains pictures of Shorter’s international students and activities. Choosing to be an international student at Shorter will broaden your future horizons and expand your world view.

The Office of International Programs serves as a liaison to international students studying at Shorter University.  The office provides international students with helpful information regarding studying in the United States, such as embassy, visa and security requirements. Listed below are links that will help international students prepare to study in the United States.

Sincerely,

Linda Palumbo Olszanski
