Class of 2016 ASP Students Arrive

altBeautiful blue sky and sunshine welcomed ninety-eight new Salem residents today.  The students arrived at Portland International Airport in Oregon, USA, Monday, February 8.  The students looked excited to finally arrive and began their life in America! They will spend the next eleven months participating in  the American Studies Program at Willamette University and TIUA.  After they found their rooms in one of the residence halls on campus and met their International Peer Coach (IPC), they were officially welcomed by the Willamette community at Goudy for dinner that evening. WU's Dean of Campus Life David Douglass welcomed them to the community and they were then entertained by some WU a capella groups.  The rest of the week with be spent in orientations, campus tours, shopping, and making lots of new friends.
